Aerial view of Ashland University main campus

Ashland University is preparing for a Higher Learning Commission year four comprehensive evaluation under the Standard Pathway.  A team of HLC Peer Reviewers will visit the campus March 13-14, 2023.  This is not a reaffirmation of accreditation visit. The purpose of the visit it to verify AU’s continued compliance with HLC’s Five Criteria for Accreditation and their Core Components.

As part of this Assurance Review, submission of an Assurance Argument will occur prior to the site visit.  The Assurance Argument will consist of a series of claims on how AU meets the criteria for accreditation and all core components with evidence to support the claims.  Evidence is housed within the HLC assurance system so links to the evidence are not active in the final assurance document.
