East Central College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), an independent organization approved by the U.S. Department of Education. The HLC is responsible for accrediting degree-granting and post-secondary educational institutions. Such accreditation is required to offer federal financial aid to students, to receive federal grants, and to provide students the ability to transfer credit between accredited institutions. Following our most recent Comprehensive Evaluation, the review team provided this report.
An information archive of that review is available on the 2022 Comprehensive Visit page.
