Yes! Peru State College has been regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission since 1915.
HLC is an institutional accreditor recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation to accredit degree-granting colleges and universities. Institutional accreditation validates the quality of an institution’s academic programs at all degree levels, whether delivered on-site, online or otherwise. Institutional accreditation also examines the quality of the institution beyond its academic offerings and evaluates the institution as a whole, including the soundness of its governance and administration, adherence to mission, the sustainability of its finances, and the sufficiency of its resources.
Peru State received notice in July 2022 of its continued accreditation by HLC with the next Reaffirmation of Accreditation in 2031-32.
Peru State College has programmatic accreditation under the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Standards through the CAEP Accreditation System, for a period of 7 hears, from 2015-2022. Peru State College was reviewed under the Council for Accreditation of Education Preparation (CAEP) Standards in Fall 2022 and is awaiting action on its review. Formed in 2013, CAEP is the single specialized accreditor for educator preparation and administers NCATE accreditation.
