HLC Accreditation

Central Lakes College’s Accreditation

Accreditation Status

Central Lakes College’s accreditation through the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) was originally granted in 1995, and reaffirmed in 2013. Subsequently, in April 2023, CLC underwent its Comprehensive Accreditation Review. In this process, the HLC, one of several organizations in the United States recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, once again reviewed the college based on the HLC Criteria for Accreditation which address the mission, educational quality, and integrity of the institution, as well as compliance with federal regulations and academic progress. In July 2023, the HLC reaffirmed CLC’s accreditation.
