Accreditation: Credibility in Education

Why Does Accreditation Matter?

Accreditation creates a promise to students, employers, and the community that Normandale Community College meets or exceeds national standards for development of curriculum, quality of faculty, and support for the student experience.

Accreditation ensures students:  

  • Are eligible for financial aid
  • Have improved transferability of credits
  • Can fulfill licensure requirements

Normandale is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.  Since 2007, the College has maintained its accreditation through the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP), an alternative process based on continuous quality improvement.
