University College programs maintain the highest level of accreditation offered by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, one of the regional accrediting bodies recognized by the federal government. The University of Denver and all of its academic programs are regionally accredited by this commission, and regional accreditation is the highest standard for universities in the United States. The commission sets a standard of integrity for universities, taking into consideration the academic mission, strategy, resources, assessment process, teaching effectiveness, student learning, usefulness of curricula, and community involvement.
Receiving a degree or graduate certificate from a regionally accredited academic institution will improve your chances of future employment, as the standard of quality is acknowledged across the board. By attending a regionally accredited program, you'll benefit from recognized achievement at the collegiate level as determined by the Higher Learning Commission.
