The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA) accredits Turtle Mountain Community College.  Accreditation is not a requirement but is important to the College.  According to the NCA Handbook of Accreditation, “Accreditation is both a process and a result.  As a process, it is a form of peer review in which educational institutions establish a set of criteria and procedures by which they and their fellows are judged.  As a result, it is a form of certification by which the quality of an educational institution, as defined by the accreditation body’s criteria, is affirmed.”  Accreditation information are located on the TMCC website on the Institutional Research, Assessment, and Accreditation page.
