In April 2024, WVU will undergo a comprehensive evaluation by the Higher Learning Commission to ensure it is meeting the criteria for accreditation. This Year 10 reaffirmation of accreditation will include the submission and review of a full report from WVU demonstrating compliance with the five criteria, a federal compliance review for Title IV support eligibility, a student opinion survey and an on-site peer review visit.
Throughout the 2023 calendar year, the Office of the Provost will host “Preparing for Accreditation 2024,” a series of presentations and discussions focused on each of the HLC’s criteria for accreditation.
The first event, “Introduction to WVU's 2024 HLC Comprehensive Reaffirmation of Accreditation,” will take place via Zoom from 10-11:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 3.
Each in-person event will focus on one of the five HLC accreditation criteria. The events will be held on March 3, April 14, Sept. 1, Oct. 6, and Nov. 3. A final campus review of the self-study will take place on Zoom Jan. 19, 2024.
WVU faculty and staff are encouraged to engage in the process through these interactive events. By learning about the reaffirmation process and each of the criteria for accreditation, faculty and staff will be able to identify where they are able to contribute to the self-study and provide supporting evidence to highlight work being done in each area.
Details for the upcoming events will be added to the Provost’s Office website and shared in MOUNTAINEER E-NEWS and through other communication platforms as dates approach.
