Oklahoma State University has been engaged in an institutional self-study in preparation for a regional accreditation site visit. The policies, practices, and processes of the institution were studied to determine if they ensure fulfillment of the mission and satisfaction of the accreditation criteria. A self-study report, produced from this process, has been written. The report is available from this website, Self-Study Report, or from the front cover above.

Faculty, staff, students and administrators of Oklahoma State University are encouraged to read the Executive Summary of the self-study report to prepare for the on-site accreditation visit. The Executive Summary states the new accreditation criteria and explains how OSU satisfies the core components associated with each criterion.

The self-study report has been submitted to the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), a Commission of the North Central Association (NCA). On September 26, 27, and 28, 2005, Consultant/Evaluators from the HLC will visit campus to assess the institution for continued institutional accreditation. The HLC, formerly referred to as the NCA, is one of six regional institutional accrediting associations in the United States.

Institutional self-study provided the opportunity to understand more fully and to improve our university. For more than two years, groups chosen from all colleges and various units have studied the institution and assessed in what ways the institution satisfies the HLC accreditation criteria. The Source Writings, available on the upper left, were produced from the resulting conversations and data that were considered. The self-study report is based on the Source Writings and other information about the university.
