Accreditation is crucial not only for a university’s reputation; it is also vital to the worth of an institution’s degree.

Accreditation is the process by which an educational institution is evaluated and certified by a federally sanctioned accrediting body.

The University of Montana Western works with three accrediting bodies: the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, and the International Association for Collegiate Business Education.

The University of Montana Western's accreditation self studies and each accrediting body's final reports are all available through this site.
