Higher Learning Commission

NMMI has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools since 1932 to offer Associate Degrees in Arts or Science.
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. Other agencies provide accreditation for specific programs. Accreditation is voluntary. The Commission accredits approximately 1100 institutions of higher education in a nineteen state region. The Commission is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
