Accreditation is a system for recognizing educational institutions and/or their professional programs that achieve and maintain a level of performance, integrity and quality that entitles them to the confidence of the educational community, the industry and the public they serve. (excerpt from the Aviation Accreditation Board International website.)
The University of Oklahoma is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. The Higher Learning Commission is one of six regional accrediting agencies in the United States. Institutional accreditation evaluates an entire institution and accredits it as a whole. Other agencies provide accreditation for specific programs. Accreditation is voluntary. The Commission accredits approximately 950 institutions of higher education in a nineteen-state region. The Commission is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
All documents related to prior site visits, including self-studies and team reports are posted online.
The Higher Learning Commission can be reached by writing to 230 South LaSalle Street, Suite 7-500, Chicago, IL 60604 or calling 1-800-621-7440. If you would like to file a complaint with the Higher Learning Commission you can do so by sending an email to email@example.com.
If you are a resident of the state of Oklahoma and feel the need to take your complaint to the state level, the appropriate authority in the State of Oklahoma is the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
Residents of other states wishing to file a complaint in their home state should consult the State Complaint Departments page for appropriate contact information.
