Every eight years, the University’s accreditation is subject to review to ensure compliance with standards of accreditation. This process entails the preparation of a Self-Study report and a site visit by an evaluation team. Additionally, the University files an Annual Institutional Update with the Commission. The Annual Reports are subject to peer review at the mid-point of the accreditation cycle. The mid-point peer review scheduled for fall 2020 and the next Self-Study will be in 2023-2024.
