2020 Accreditation Updates

The University of Michigan – Ann Arbor seeks its decennial reaffirmation of accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission in 2020.

This comprehensive review includes the submission of an assurance argument and culminates on April 20-21 when nine reviewers from peer institutions evaluate campus.

Given the rapidly evolving situation surrounding COVID-19, we are conducting the HLC accreditation review fully remotely. The peer review team will not come to campus, and all U-M participants will join the discussion online or by phone.
