Standing with State and Other Accrediting Agencies

Higher Learning Commission

New Mexico Military Institute’s Junior College program 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.  NMMI is currently accredited through 2030.
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.

2020 HLC Final Report

Cognia (formerly known as AdvancedED)

Cognia is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that accredits primary and secondary schools throughout the United States and internationally.  Cognia was formed as AdvancED in 2006 by the consolidation of the pre-college divisions of two of the U.S. regional accreditation organizations: the Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA CASI), and the Council on Accreditation and School Improvement of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS CASI). In 2012 the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) joined AdvancED. AdvancED merged with Measured Progress in 2018 and the organization rebranded as Cognia in 2019.

New Mexico Military Institute’s high school program is accredited through 2023 through AdvancEd, which is now known as Cognia.
