University Planning


In 2011, the Higher Learning Commission re-affirmed Western Illinois University's accreditation through academic year 2020-2021. The University was first accredited in 1913, and accreditation has been continuous since that time. The  University's Self Study Report  and the complete  Higher Learning Commission Team Report  are available for review. Western also maintains  discipline-specific accreditations  as appropriate to the discipline and for the University-wide Teacher Education program.
