Accreditation and Affiliations
Accreditation is a quality assurance process that involves an evaluation of a college or program within a college by an external organization to determine if applicable standards are met. When an institution meets those standards, accredited status is granted by the agency. North Central College, as an institution, is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. It is also affiliated with the United Methodist church. In addition, many academic programs meet the rigorous standards necessary to be accredited by other outside organizations.
