A review team from the HLC visited UW-Whitewater in October 2015. HLC accreditation is very important for our campus, impacting things such as transfer credits and access to federal funds (including student loans). We're happy to report that the review team had very positive things to say about UW-Whitewater, and recommended full reaccreditation. Congratulations, UW-W!
To learn more about the HLC reaccreditation process and the criteria for accreditation, go to the HLC website.
