June 2016 Board Actions
At its June 2016 meeting, HLC’s Board of Trustees adopted a change to the organization’s Assumed Practices policy and approved two proposed policy changes on first reading. These changes involve eliminating the option to extend accreditation for closing institutions and creating designations for institutions that are financially distressed or under governmental investigation. The Board also adopted the 2016–2017 Dues and Fees Schedule and took a number of institutional actions. View the full Board actions report >>

Please note: By policy, HLC is required to make available for comment policies affecting affiliated and member organizations during the period between the first and second reading of the proposed policy. As this policy is proposed to allow HLC to respond more quickly to developing situations at member institutions, the timeline has been truncated and the Board will consider this policy for second reading at a conference call in late summer 2016.
