On behalf of our faculty, staff, students and administrators, welcome to the University of Colorado Boulder website for accreditation in 2020.

CU-Boulder is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States. Accreditation review takes place every 10 years and requires a comprehensive evaluation of the university's programs, policies and practices. In December 2019, a team of leading educators visited CU Boulder to review the university's adherence to the criteria for accreditation, and provide recommendations for continued improvement.

This website is designed to provide the campus community and the public with access to information about the accreditation process. It is also designed to assist the HLC consultant evaluator team in the review process.

The accreditation process is a unique opportunity for introspection about CU Boulder's strengths and challenges—and a chance to gain thoughtful feedback from the team of higher education leaders assembled by the HLC. We welcome this opportunity to focus and expand our plans in progress for the future of Colorado’s flagship university.
