NCA visits Davenport and West campuses

cover of Self Study Report

Palmer College underwent a comprehensive evaluation visit May 11-14, 2009, by a team representing The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Palmer’s Davenport Campus has been accredited by the Commission since 1984 and the Florida Campus since 2004. Palmer’s West Campus was evaluated for initial regional accreditation during the May site visit.

The Higher Learning Commission is one of six accrediting agencies in the United States that provides institutional accreditation on a regional basis. The Commission accredits approximately 1,100 institutions of higher education in a 19-state region, and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

More than 18 months prior to submitting the final document in March 2009, Palmer College of Chiropractic was engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission’s requirements and criteria for accreditation. To see the final NCA Self-Study document, go to: http://w3.palmer.edu/nca_ self_study/.

The evaluation team conducted the site visit to gather evidence that the selfstudy was thorough and accurate. The team makes a recommendation to the Commission regarding a continuing status for the College. Following a review process, the Commission itself will take the final action. For more information on the NCA accreditation, watch for further stories in Palmer Highlights and on Palmer News Online.
