Accreditations and awards
Accreditations and awards earned by higher education institutions reflect an objective, independent assessment of compliance with high standards of academic excellence. In 1976, Franklin University was accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), a Chicago-based corporation providing institution-level accreditation of degree-granting colleges and universities, one of two regional accreditors within the composition of the North Central Association of Colleges and Universities (NCA). The NCA, founded in 1895, is one of 6 regional accrediting bodies in the US higher education sector.
In 2010, Franklin University was also accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), an American professional accrediting organization for mission-driven and outcomes-based evaluation of business education programs. The accreditation process involves a comprehensive assessment of the curricula, the quality of instruction, the faculty’s academic merit, and the school’s facilities and infrastructure.
