Institutional Self-Study 2012
Northcentral University Higher Learning Commission (HLC) Comprehensive Visit and Self-Study 2012
Northcentral University is currently in the process of creating our institutional self-study. A self-study is a detailed document that we provide to our accrediting body, The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). Accreditation is a process of institutional peer review that confers upon an institution a mark of quality and distinction recognized and respected throughout the enterprise of higher education.
Northcentral was founded in 1996 in Prescott, Arizona. In June of 2001, the University received initial candidacy from the HLC, followed by a site visit in 2002. In 2003, Northcentral was awarded full accreditation and has maintained accreditation since that date. The University's accreditation was last reaffirmed in 2008.
In anticipation of our next HLC comprehensive site visit in October of 2012, we have designed this site to provide information on the process of the self-study, access to materials that support our comprehensive site visit (including the self-study report), and finally (and probably most importantly) as a place where you can leave us feedback.
Our self-study is really the "Northcentral University Story." Welcome to our narrativea story that is continually evolving, connecting students, faculty, mentors and staff worldwide.
