Ball State is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Following the Fall 2013 peer review team visit, we are now pursuing the HLC's Open Pathway accreditation model. During 2017-2018 the University will submit its assurance argument and evidence file for a (virtual) assurance review. BSU will submit a quality initiative proposal to HLC in 2018-2020 and will submit its quality initiative report during 2020-2022. We will submit our assurance argument, evidence file, and evidence of fulfilling federal compliance requirements to HLC in 2023-2024 for an on-campus assurance review and reaffirmation of accreditation.
