Programmatic Accreditation

Higher Learning Commission (HLC) policy requires that we remain in good standing with programmatic accrediting agencies and that we disclose to HLC any pending or final actions taken by an accrediting agency to withdraw accredited or pre-accredited status, impose a sanction or deny an application for such status. Completion of this form for each programmatic accreditation will enable Ohio University to more closely monitor our programmatic accreditation so that we ensure our compliance with this HLC policy.
