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.



AdvancED offers school improvement and accreditation services to education providers of all types in their pursuit of excellence in serving students. Continuous improvement through process, content and technology is our business. They operate three regional accrediting agencies, serving 32,000 institutions in over 70 countries educating more that 20 million students.
The North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI) are accreditation divisions of AdvancED.
