Site Visit

March 11 and 12, 2024

The Higher Learning Commission will visit University of Illinois Chicago on Monday, March 11, and Tuesday, March 12, 2024, for the university's comprehensive review related to reaffirming its accreditation.

UIC has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) since 1970 and participates in the Open Pathway review cycle to maintain accreditation. As a requirement to reaffirm accreditation, the university has prepared an evidence-supported Assurance Argument and branch campus reports for Peoria, Rockford, and the UIC School of Law, demonstrating how UIC meets the commission’s five criteria for accreditation and continues to improve quality across all operations.
