After a three-year-long process, the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) has reconfirmed ACE’s accreditation for another 10 years. Accreditation through HLC provides confirmation to faculty, students, and staff members that the graduate programs provided through ACE are upheld to nationally accepted standards.
“The re-validation of our institution as a higher education establishment confirms that we are continuing to achieve our mission of providing quality educational programs to our nation’s educators,” said Shawntel Landry, provost and interim president for American College of Education. “We have taken the re-accreditation process through HLC as an opportunity to assess our curriculum, programs, and overall mission, and have ensured that our academic objectives are being met.”
HLC has provided accreditation to educational organizations since 1895 and oversees the accreditation of higher education institutions in the North Central region of the U.S.
ACE formerly received reaffirmation of its accredited status in 2008. It has been accredited by the HLC since January of 2005. For more information on ACE's accreditation click here.
