North Central Association of Colleges and Schools
The North Central Association of
Colleges and Schools, also known as the North Central Association, was a
membership organization, consisting of colleges, universities, and schools in
19 U.S. states engaged in educational accreditation. It was one of six
regional accreditation bodies in the United States and its Higher Learning
Commission was recognized by the United States Department of Education and the
Council for Higher Education Accreditation as a regional accreditor
for higher education institutions. The organization was dissolved in 2014.
The primary and secondary education accreditation functions of the
association have been merged into AdvancED with the postsecondary
education accreditation functions vested in the Higher Learning Commission.
