Posted November 1, 2010

POWELL, Wyo. - A five-person team from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) will be in Powell Monday-Wednesday, Nov. 15-17, to assess Northwest College’s suitability for reaccreditation.

As part of its investigation, the team will pour through resources, both electronic and paper. Evaluators will also talk with individuals, both on campus and in the community, about their understanding of Northwest College.

The visiting team is expected to give a preliminary report before leaving campus.

A written report with findings and recommendations will be submitted afterward to the Higher Learning Commission. Northwest College will be notified of the HLC's decision regarding reaccreditation following HLC board action. Information on the HLC is available online.

The visiting team’s schedule is expected to be available about a week before the visit. Those who are interested can find it by following the Self-Study Process link.
