Higher Learning Commission Continues Accreditation For Colorado Technical University

Colorado Technical University (CTU), a leading provider of education for career-motivated students, announced today that the principal accreditor of the university and its programs – the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) – has acted to continue its accreditation. CTU is a part of Career Education Corporation (NASDAQ: CECO), a global provider of postsecondary education programs and services.

The next reaffirmation of accreditation is scheduled for 2022-2023. CTU will have a comprehensive review in 2016-17 and was asked to provide two interim monitoring reports to HLC, which will be completed by July 2013.

“We are gratified the Higher Learning Commission extended our accreditation and appreciate the thoroughness, thoughtfulness and level of engagement the commission demonstrated during this extensive review process,” said Jack Koehn, Acting President, CTU. “We are pleased the commission affirmed the university’s ongoing compliance with its Criteria for Accreditation.”

Accrediting organizations set the academic and operational standards by which their member institutions must comply. This quality assurance process is performed by private membership associations, like the Chicago-based Higher Learning Commission, which was founded in 1895 and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
