Higher Learning Commission Accreditation
UAMS Granted Full Reaccreditation
On April 17-18, 2017 a four-member panel from the Higher Learning Commission visited the campus and held 17 meetings, including three open forums, a student-only forum, and focused meeting in which more than 450 faculty, staff, students and administrators participated.
UAMS was granted full reaccreditation with the next cycle coming in the 2027 academic year.
UAMS is required to have HLC accreditation in order to allow credits and degrees to be transferred from other accredited higher education institutions and to ensure professional licensure for UAMS graduates. Accreditation is also required before students can receive federal financial aid.
