HLC 2021 Accreditation

Federal Compliance

 

HLC is required to assure that all member institutions comply with federal regulations -- some even relate to specific HLC critieria and assumed practices.  While UA can be audited at any time, the HLC site visit team will include a review of UA's compliance as part of their comprehensive evaluation in 2021.  This also ensures that UA remain eligible for federal financial aid.
