Accreditation is a process of reviewing the quality of higher education institutions. UMC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. It uses the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) process for accreditation.
AQIP - Academic Quality Improvement Program
This program utilizes a continuous improvement process and provides an alternative process through which an already-accredited institution can maintain its accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission. With AQIP, an institution has continuous quality improvement activities and accreditation becomes a continuous process.
Higher Learning Commission
The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is an independent corporation which is one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States. The Higher Learning Commission accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region.
