Midwestern University has received official notice from the Institutions Actions Council of the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) that confirms that the University will continue with full accreditation for another 10-year cycle.

The Higher Learning Commission's decision states that the University's next Reaffirmation of Accreditation will occur in the 2027-2028 accreditation cycle. This news comes at the conclusion of a comprehensive evaluation of the University's curriculum, standards of excellence, and clinical operations that took place in January, and marked the end of the previous 10-year accreditation cycle.

"Maintaining accreditation and meeting the rigorous standards required by the Higher Learning Commission requires a great deal of hard work and dedication from our entire Midwestern University family," said Kathleen H. Goeppinger, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Midwestern University. "I wish to convey my very sincere thanks to our wonderful faculty, staff, and administrators for this fantastic achievement."
