Ball State’s continuing institutional accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools was reaffirmed on January 14, 2014, following a two-year self-study process. The university is now accredited through 2023–24.

Our good standing makes us eligible for the open pathway option for our next reaffirmation of accreditation. Instead of an intense data-gathering process in 10 years, Ball State will provide annual updates to the commission and undergo two assurance reviews during the period. 

Purpose of Accreditation

Institutional accreditation is a voluntary initiative that includes a comprehensive, critical evaluation of the university’s mission, goals, programs, and resources. Accreditation assures students and the public that the institution meets quality standards set by an independent, nongovernmental organization committed to enhancing higher education. The accreditation process helps the university ensure accountability and plan for improvement. Ball State has been accredited since 1925.
