Chatfield College Receives Good News From Higher Learning Commission

Chatfield College recently received formal notification from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) that the college has successfully met HLC’s Criteria for Accreditation.  Accreditation by HLC, commonly known as “regional accreditation”,ensures that Chatfield students are eligible to take advantage of all federal and state financial aid programs and greatly enhances the transferability of credits earned at Chatfield to and from other regionally accredited colleges and universities.  Accreditation also validates the quality of a college as a whole, ranging from academic offerings and mission to support services for students.

Last October, a visiting team from HLC performed a comprehensive review and evaluation of Chatfield’s compliance with its criteria for accreditation.  The team reviewed materials submitted by Chatfield prior to the visit and conducted extensive interviews on both Chatfield campuses with multiple stakeholders from the college, including students, faculty, staff, and board, as well as representatives of the larger community.

“Many people worked very hard for quite some time to prepare for this most recent visit from HLC.  We are pleased to hear of such a positive outcome from this process. We also are grateful to all the members of the communities we serve who came out in support of Chatfield”, explained Dr. Peter Hanson, Chatfield’s Dean and Chief Academic Officer.

Other regionally accredited institutions in Greater Cincinnati include the University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, Northern Kentucky University, Miami University, Mount St. Joseph University, Thomas More University, Indiana Wesleyan University and Wilmington College. HLC will return for its next visit to Chatfield in 2021.
