HLC Visit Overview

Rockhurst University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. 

Rockhurst is preparing for a comprehensive visit and will host the Higher Learning Commission's visiting team on campus November 14-15, 2016. Faculty, students, and staff will be invited to attend several open forums during the visit.

Accreditation is important because it allows students to be eligible for federal and state financial aid, gives assurance that a Rockhurst degree is valid, assures donors and potential students that an RU education is valuable, and provides flexibility for transfer of credit to or from other institutions.
