College Accreditation

When you attend an accredited college or university, you can expect:

A Quality Education: Accreditation means that a college, university, institution or program meets standards of quality for faculty, curriculum, administration, library, financial management and student services.

Financial Aid Opportunities: You can only obtain federal financial assistance if your college or university has appropriate accreditation from an organization recognized by the United States Department of Education.

Credits that Transfer: If you ever want to transfer your college credits to continue your education, accreditation is an important factor when a college or university is deciding whether to accept transfer credits from your previous school.

The Higher Learning Commission is an independent corporation that accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions of higher education in the North Central region including 19 states. Institutions that the Commission accredits are evaluated against the Commission’s Criteria for Accreditation, a set of standards that institutions must meet to receive and/or maintain accredited status.

Moraine Park Technical College follows a 10-year cycle the Higher Learning Commission refers to as the Open Pathway. During year 10 of the Open Pathway, the Commission conducts a comprehensive evaluation and site visit. The reaffirmation of accreditation will occur in 2023-2024 for Moraine Park Technical College.

More information on the Higher Learning Commission or the Open Pathway can be found at www.hlcommission.org.
