Michigan Tech is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission (HLC), a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. HLC accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region.

Michigan Tech has been continuously accredited since 1928. In 2005, Michigan Tech was accepted into the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP), an alternative evaluation process for organizations already accredited by the Commission. AQIP requires evidence of continuous improvement, as demonstrated by ongoing action projects and a systems portfolio.

We completed six action projects, two strategy forums, and a systems portfolio. In 2012, we completed a Quality Checkup visit and accreditation was reaffirmed. For more information, click here. In 2013, Michigan Tech elected to move onto the Open Pathway.
