Yes, We Do! Results of WSU's Successful 2012 HLC Accreditation Report and Visit

The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) has confirmed WSU's continued approval/accreditation for another 10-year cycle. The HLC Steering Committee sincerely thanks the many faculty, staff, students and administrators who were an active part of this successful venture.

For a quick summary, you can review the HLC Site Visit Summary (PDF), already presented to constituency groups across campus. We also invite you to view the full HLC Site Visit Team's Assurance Report.

Winona State University is institutionally accredited by the North Central Association / Higher Learning Commission (NCA/HLC) under the Program to Evaluate and Advance Quality (PEAQ). In order to maintain accreditation, WSU completes a comprehensive, retrospective Self-Study and hosts a team of reviewers from the HLC for a comprehensive site visit every 10 years.
