The Higher Learning Commission is one of six regional accrediting organizations in the United States. Committed to developing and maintaining high standards of excellence, The Higher Learning Commission accredits colleges and universities in a nineteen-state region. Huntington College has been accredited since 1961 and was last reviewed in 1994.

Accreditation applies to the institution as a whole. Other agencies, such as the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), provide accreditation for specific programs.

In preparation for next April’s visit from the Higher Learning Commission team, Huntington College is currently engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission’s criteria for accreditation. The evaluation team will visit Huntington in April to gather evidence that the self-study is thorough and accurate. The team will then make recommendations to the Commission regarding Huntington’s continued accreditation.

In accordance with Federal regulations, the Commission invites interested parties to submit written comments about Huntington College's reaccredidation. Comments should be sent to:

Public Comment on Huntington College
The Higher Learning Commission
30 North LaSalle Street, Suite 2400
Chicago, IL 60602-2504

Comments must be received by the Commission office no later than one month before the date the visit is scheduled to begin. The Commission cannot guarantee that comments received after the due date will be considered. Comments should include your name and address.
