Northwestern’s accreditation renewed through 2024-25

Drew Gerber, Assistant Campus Editor

Northwestern’s accreditation was renewed through 2024-25 this summer by the Institutional Actions Council of the Higher Learning Commission, which has accredited the University since 1913.

To remain accredited, universities must fulfill requirements set by the commission to ensure education quality and regulatory compliance.

Universities must be accredited to be eligible for federal student aid programs.

“Accreditation is an important process for helping the University to reflect on the progress we have made since the last review and to identify areas that could use further improvement,” Provost Daniel Linzer said Tuesday in a press release.

The University last received accreditation in 2005 from the commission, which is one of six agencies that provide institutional accreditation.
