HLC Accreditation | Assurance Process
The institution is required to conduct a self-study to determine if the five criteria have been satisfied and file a report on its findings with the HLC. A team of HLC consultant-evaluators will visit the campus in 2017 to verify the accuracy of the self-study report and offer suggestions. This is called the Assurance Process.
The HLC Steering Committee members will write the arguments supporting each criteria, linking the arguments to supporting documents such as the mission statement, program assessments, and institutional data. These materials are uploaded to the HLC Dashboard, which is password-protected.
