NPC's next accreditation visit from the Higher Learning Commission is scheduled for November 18-19, 2019.
Accreditation recognizes that the college meets or exceeds the standards and expectations established by the accreditation agency. Northland Pioneer College is a fully accredited community college by the Higher Learning Commission, 230 South LaSalle Street, Suite 7-500, Chicago, IL 60604 • (800) 621-7440. NPC has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission since October 1979.
NPC completed its last self-study of the college for the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) on October 26-28, 2009. NPC successfully met the five core components for continued accreditation from the HLC and the commission formally adopted the HLC team’s recommendation in May 2010. The process included an examination of the institution in all of its aspects: its mission, educational activities, business practices, governance structure, facilities, planning for the future, relationships with our communities and our responses to their educational needs. How effectively the HLC feels we fulfill our mission determined the type and length of re-accreditation we received. | Read the final reports from the 2009 HLC Evaluation Team: Advancement • Assurance
