Institutional Accreditation

University of Detroit Mercy is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, and is currently accredited through 2026.

Mid-Cycle Review - Fall 2020

As part of the ten-year accreditation cycle, a mid-cycle review will occur in Fall 2020.  The mid-cycle review involves a comprehensive evaluation, similar to the comprehensive evaluation conducted every ten years, the development of a self-study and collection of evidentiary documents supporting the self-study, and a site visit by a peer review team.  The 2020 site visit will be primarily conducted virtually while one peer reviewer will be on-site at the McNichols campus during the visit.  The site visit will occur Sept. 14 and 15, 2020.    

University of Detroit Mercy Self-Study
