MSU-Northern Seeks Public Comment 

Montana State University-Northern is accredited with the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).  Campuses that are accredited through the NWCCU are thoroughly reviewed every seven years to determine if they still meet the standards required by Northwest.  The last time the Commission was on campus was the Fall of 2016 when they conducted a routine interim visit.  This is a lengthy process that requires the campus to conduct a self study and to host an evaluation team from Northwest.  The campus is completing its self study and is scheduled to host a campus visit on October 4-6.  

The Commission would like to invite public comment about MSU-Northern’s accreditation status.  Copies of the written comments will be given to the evaluation team and MSU-Northern.  All third-party comments must be received at the Commission office by September 18.
