Accreditation & Program Assessment


NEOMED is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The HLC is one of the six regional agencies that accredit U.S. colleges and universities at the institutional level.

The university’s last site visit by a Commission team was in September 2022, resulting in a full 10-year reaccreditation, the most that can be earned.

Institutional Review

At least every seven years, every NEOMED academic department and organizational unit is reviewed to ensure:

  • alignment to University and College missions, visions and strategic plans and
  • efficient use of resources.

Institutional review guidelines are outlined in University Faculty Bylaws Appendix F.

Program Review

All graduate programs in the NEOMED College of Graduate Studies are reviewed according to the NEOMED Procedures for Regular Review of Graduate Programs and the requirements of the following government and accrediting bodies:

Ohio Department of Higher Education

Higher Learning Commission
