PSU is one of only 14 institutions of higher education originally selected as pioneers to help develop a new program to streamline the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association’s accreditation process.

The accreditation process is an intense, universitywide review over a 10-year cycle. It ensures that an institution’s academic programs are of the highest quality and that its students are able to receive federal and state financial aid.

“Pittsburg State was chosen because of its status as a mature and stable institution. PSU has been continuously accredited since 1915,” said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs,
Dr. Lynette Olson. “As we go through our accreditation process, we will be able to help the HLC develop new methods that will be used by colleges and universities throughout the nation.”
