Official Academic Accreditations Report
The University of Kansas is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The HLC is approved by the U.S. Department of Education and thus our continued accreditation is essential for students wishing to apply for Title IV financial aid.
Many of our health professional programs (e.g. medicine, nursing, public health, physical therapy) are also accredited by an appropriate national professional organization, and this type of accreditation is often necessary for graduates to be licensed to practice or to gain employment by certain agencies. Further, gaining/maintaining accreditation is often a mark of excellence due to the rigorous review on curriculum, faculty credentials and training, and evaluation of program resources (financial and space/facilities).
The Office of Enterprise Analytics maintains updated information regarding the accreditation status of programs at the Medical Center. The reports published here show the accreditations as of July 1, which is the beginning of our fiscal year.
