Accreditation & Affiliation - NIU - Northern Illinois University

Academic Accreditation 

Accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental, peer-review process by the higher education community that aims to provide assurance of academic quality, accountability, and stimulate processes for continuous improvement. This website serves as a resource to provide important information, procedures, and deadlines to internal and external audiences about NIU's accreditations and affiliations. 

Because accreditation is a cyclical process, information will be updated often. If you need additional information, contact our office and we'll be happy to help you.
