Upcoming Evaluations

Notification of the Opportunity for Comment:

Accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities represents the Commission’s judgment that an institution is satisfactorily achieving its mission and educational purposes and that it meets or exceeds the Commission’s standards of quality and effectiveness.

The Commission values information provided by students, employees, and others in determining whether an institution’s performance is consistent with the Standards of Accreditation and Commission policies and procedures. As a general rule, third-party comments are usually general comments of a substantive nature about a member institution.

Individuals should review the Public Notification and Third Party Comments Regarding Year Seven Evaluations Policy for more information on communicating comments on member institutions. If, after reviewing the policy, you have questions or are unsure of the procedures to follow in submitting a comment, please feel free to contact the Commission office.

The Commission hereby notifies students, employees and members of the public regarding the opportunity for third-party comments about the following member institutions with upcoming Year Seven, Initial Candidacy, Interim Candidacy, or Initial Accreditation evaluations. Third-party comments may be sent to the Commission office at:

Attn: Third Party Comment

Redmond, WA 98052

PLEASE NOTE: Third Party Comments are not accepted for Mid-Cycle evaluations.
