Marquette’s accreditation reaffirmed by HLC through 2033-34 

Marquette’s accreditation has been reaffirmed by the Institutional Actions Council of the Higher Learning Commission with the next reaffirmation of accreditation set for 2033-34. The university thanks the HLC Leadership Team led by Dr. Gary Meyer, senior vice provost for faculty affairs, for its work throughout the reaffirmation process. 

In conjunction with the renewed accreditation status for Marquette, HLC is requiring an interim report by early 2026 to show progress in three areas. Marquette is to: 

  • Differentiate learning outcomes and expectations for undergraduates and graduates enrolled in cross-listed courses.  
  • Establish consistent learning outcomes across different sections of the same course.  
  • Ensure program learning outcomes are posted on Marquette’s website.  

Marquette undergoes a reaffirmation process every 10 years, providing an opportunity to document the excellent work we do as a university while providing assurance that we are meeting and exceeding the expectations of various constituencies. The reaffirmation process also provides the chance to reflect on our work and identify both strengths and opportunities for improvement.
