Northern Michigan University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Accreditation is an ongoing process of meeting standards, continuous improvement and quality assurance demonstrated through internal and external review. Through the accreditation process, the university continuously reviews the standards and indicators to ensure that the standards are being met and to identify areas that the school may need to strengthen or improve. This review requires the university to identify the data, information, evidence and document results that validate that it is meeting each standards. NMU adopted the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) method of accreditation used by HLC.
