Grantham University – A Call for Third-party Comments

Grantham University will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit on January 23-25, 2012, by a team representing The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The Higher Learning Commission is one of six accrediting agencies in the United States that provide institutional accreditation on a regional basis. Institutional accreditation evaluates an entire institution and accredits it as a whole. Accreditation is voluntary. The Higher Learning Commission accredits approximately 1,000 institutions of higher education in a nineteen-state region and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation.

Grantham University has been involved in a series of self-study activities addressing the Commission’s requirements and criteria for accreditation. In January 2012, a team representing the Commission will visit the campus to gather evidence that the self-study is complete and accurate. Following the visit, the team will submit a recommendation to the Commission concerning initial accreditation status.


Grantham University is seeking comments from the public about the University in preparation for its evaluation by the Higher Learning Commission. The University will host a visit on January 23-25, 2012, with a team representing the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association. The team will review the institution’s ability to meet the Commission’s Criteria for Accreditation.
