Higher Learning Commission

Roosevelt University is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The HLC is an independent corporation and is one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States.  Regional accreditors evaluate an institution’s effectiveness in fulfilling its educational mission using a set of quality standards, also known as the criteria for accreditation, evaluating and accrediting institutions as a whole.  Along with assessing formal educational activities, the HLC also evaluates governance and administration, student services, student learning, financial stability and institutional resources, institutional integrity, and relationships with internal and external constituencies.  Accreditation is an indicator of quality, an important benefit to both prospective students and institutional stakeholders.  Following a comprehensive evaluation and campus visit in 2015, Roosevelt’s institutional accreditation was reaffirmed for 10 years.
