Chatfield College to Undergo Re-Accreditation Visit
January 20th, 2011
Chatfield College in St. Martin and Cincinnati, Ohio will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit March 7-9, 2011 by a team representing The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Chatfield College has been accredited by the Commission since 1972. Its accreditation is for the Associate degree, and includes a third year of study towards the Bachelor's degree.
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 19-state region. The Commission is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
For the past two years, Chatfield College has been engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission's requirements and criteria for accreditation. The evaluation team will visit the institution to gather evidence that the self-study is thorough and accurate. The team will recommend to the Commission a continuing status for the college. Following a review process, the Commission itself will take final action.
The public is invited to submit comments regarding the college to:
