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.

In 2013, NEOMED was reaccredited by the Commission for 10 years, the maximum period allowed.

The university’s next site visit by a Commission team will be Sept 12-13, 2022.

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