What does CSU-Global's reaffirmation of accreditation mean to you?

Please note: CSU-Global has been awarded reaffirmation, with the next reaffirmation scheduled for 2025-2026. You can view the formal notification letter here. The contents of this page are being maintained for archival purposes.

Colorado State University-Global Campus received its regional accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) in June, 2011. This initial accreditation was good for a five-year period, and it will be reaffirmed during the 2015/2016 academic year. It is an 18-month reflective process that culminates in a comprehensive visit from the team of HLC accreditation auditors during the 2015-2016 academic year.

This page will keep you updated, informed, and aware at every step in the process. If you have any questions about our reaffirmation of accreditation, or would simply like to remain informed, be sure to check back often!

The HLC Reaffirmation Process

When evaluating an institution for accreditation or reaffirmation of accreditation, the HLC works through a comprehensive process designed to uphold its stated mission: Serving the common good by assuring and advancing the quality of higher education.

During the evaluation process, CSU-Global will be thoroughly evaluated on five key criteria.

  • Criterion 1: Mission
  • Criterion 2: Integrity - Ethical and Responsible Conduct
  • Criterion 3: Teaching and Learning - Quality, Resources, and Support
  • Criterion 4: Teaching and Learning - Evaluation and Improvement
  • Criterion 5: Resources, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness

The reaffirmation process will take approximately 18 months, and will be conducted by teams of staff and faculty who work to confirm (through evidence, documentation, and observation) that CSU-Global meets the Accreditation Criteria, Assumed Practices, and Federal Regulations of the Higher Learning Commission. The reaffirmation process is led by a team of peer reviewers who will audit assurance documentation and ultimately conduct a site visit.
