Click to view the Self-StudySMSU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). In order to remain accredited, every ten years the University must be reviewed. The next accreditation review takes place October 20-22, 2014.

Five HLC peer reviewers, who are trained in accreditation and come from other universities in the HLC region, will be on-campus to conduct the review. As required by the HLC, SMSU has written a self-study that reflects on how well we are meeting the criteria for continuing accreditation. When the reviewers come to campus, they will be visiting with members of the University and community about what they have read in the self-study and will determine whether the University continues to meet the criteria for accreditation.
