2013 Accreditation Update
Between late April to early August, members of the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) review team visited each Antioch University campus and the University administrative offices. The HLC review team will be submitting its final report to the Commission in September, at which point Antioch University will receive a copy of the report and we will draft our institutional response. The Institutional Actions Council of The Higher Learning Commission will receive the report and take formal action on the report in early fall.
