Every ten years Marshall University undergoes an extensive self-study to prepare for a university-wide re-accreditation review by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). Accreditation assures our students that their academic programs meet nationally recognized standards. As part of the NCA accreditation process, Marshall University
has completed a comprehensive Self-Study Report that examined all aspects of the institution. The Self-Study Report is available for
your review. A NCA Self Study Team has conducted the NCA accreditation site visit on April 10-12, 2006.
The Team Final report is now available for your review.
