Dixie State University
Accreditation

Dixie State University has been accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities since 1945. DSU’s latest reaffirmation of accreditation was awarded after its comprehensive self-study of 2012.

Ensuring Quality

Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality evaluated through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.

Accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities is not partial, but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
