“Accreditation” is the process of external quality review used by higher education to scrutinize colleges, universities, and educational programs for quality assurance and quality improvement (Council for Higher Education Accreditation; CHEA, 2015). The University of Illinois Chicago maintains its institutional accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). 

In addition to UIC’s institutional accreditation, several degree programs, schools, and colleges within UIC are accredited through programmatic and disciplinary accreditors that are recognized by CHEA or the United States Department of Education (USDE). Please see the complete list.

To learn more about accreditation and why it is important, please visit the CHEA website.
