Overview


While it is a voluntary process, regional accreditation is crucial for colleges and universities. The Higher Learning Commission is one of six regional accreditors officially recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Regional accreditors such as HLC evaluate the quality of academic institutions. Through accreditation, colleges and universities are able to offer federal financial aid in the form of grants and loans. More information about accreditation is available from the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

In addition to regional accreditation, some Rend Lake College programs have specialized, or programmatic, accreditations as well. Other programs also are approved by other entities.
