UVU will undergo a Year Seven Evaluation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and
Universities, our regional accreditor, in Fall 2017. This is the major periodic evaluation
by the commission that reaffirms our status as an accredited institution eligible
to offer federal student aid.
As part of the process UVU must prepare a self-study demonstrating its compliance
with NWCCU standards for accreditation. Standards One, Three, For, and Five address
the development, assessment, and fulfillment of UVU's mission, and is prepared primarily
by Planning, Budget, and Human Resources and the University Planning Advisory Committee.
Standard Two documents that UVU has the resources and capacities to fulfill our mission
and is completed by the executives responsible for the appropriate university functions.
Accreditation is managed through Insight 2.0. This requires creation of a user account
if you do not already have one for the strategic planning process. Executives responsible
for Standard Two responses should complete them in Insight.
