Accreditation @ ISU

Higher Learning Commission (HLC)

Indiana State University has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) since 1915. The accreditation process has two primary goals: to ensure the quality of institutions of higher education and to promote continuous improvement.

ISU was last reviewed in 2020. The next comprehensive evaluation will occur in 2030-2031.

Specialized Accreditations

In addition to institutional accreditation conferred by the HLC, many of ISU’s educational programs are accredited by specialized agencies, such as discipline-based organizations and professional associations. Information about the specialized accreditations of ISU’s educational programs can be found at Programs.

External Program Review

Programs that do not have specialized accrediting agencies are reviewed on a regular basis. See the current review schedule.
