Wayne State University has been accredited since 1915 by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of
Colleges and Schools, one of the six regional agencies that accredit U.S. colleges and universities at the institutional
level. Accreditation provides assurance to the public and to prospective students that standards of quality have been met.
A team from the Commission will visit Wayne State February 12-14, 2007 to evaluate whether the university continues to
meet the requirements for accreditation.
Requirements for accreditation are listed in the
Handbook of Accreditation, third edition.

Accreditation is not just the work of a few select members of the team, but rather
involves the entire Wayne State University community. Please read the
the accreditation newsletter NCA Accreditation Update and check back for future issues.
