Indiana State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). This means that ISU courses and degrees are of a quality and standard recognized by employers. In addition, this ensures transferability of ISU credit to other colleges and universities, including graduate schools.


In addition to institutional accreditation conferred by the HLC, many of the University's educational programs are accredited by specialized agencies such as discipline-based organizations and professional associations.
