Indiana University East has received continued accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (HLC). The HLC’s next comprehensive evaluation of IU East will take place in 2021-22. In the fall of 2015, Indiana University East successfully completed the mid-cycle assurance argument as part of our ongoing accreditation obligations for the Higher Learning Commission. With this, the university is on track for a full review in 2021-22.
IU East has been an accredited institution of higher education since 1971. The HLC is one of six accrediting agencies in the United States that provide institutional accreditation on a regional basis. The HLC accredits over 1,000 institutions in a nineteen-state region, and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
