HLC requires each member and candidate institution to provide an update on organizational health through the Institutional Update. The 2017 Institutional Update will take place February 27–March 30, 2017. Institutions may refer to the 2017 Institutional Update Guide to begin preparing the required information.
In an effort to present a more complete picture of the offerings at member institutions, HLC is exploring the feasibility of collecting information regarding institutional program offerings and publishing them in the Institutional Status and Requirements (ISR) Report. More information about this project will be available in the coming years.
