accreditation

Accreditation is the process of external quality review used in higher education to scrutinize colleges, universities, and higher education programs for quality assurance and quality improvement.     

Accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission provides assurance to the public, in particular to prospective students, that an organization has been found to meet the agency's clearly stated requirements and criteria and that there are reasonable grounds for believing that it will continue to meet them.

In addition to HTC's institutional accreditation, many of HTC's programs have achieved accreditation and certification status.
