The comprehensive site visit by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) originally scheduled for April 2017 will now take place in October 2017. The request for extension was recommended by the Colorado Department of Higher Education. This extension will enable full implementation of any changes in Extended Studies and will maximize ASU’s ability to provide evidence that the university meets all of the Criteria for Accreditation. The HLC Board’s review of the site visit team’s recommendations remains scheduled for February 2018. ASU remains accredited during this entire process.
