New Accreditation Criteria Approved | Effective Sept 2020

April 1, 2019

HLC is required to initiate a review of its Criteria for Accreditation every five years. In 2018, HLC published draft alpha and beta versions of the revised Criteria and received feedback from the membership and peer reviewers. HLC’s Board of Trustees adopted the final version at its February 2019 meeting. The new Criteria will go into effect on September 1, 2020.
