A Measure of Quality

Accreditation means an institution meets certain standards of educational quality and is being continually reviewed to uphold those standards. Rasmussen College is committed to continuous improvement and providing high-quality education to all of our students.

Rasmussen College: Regionally Accredited

Accredited by the Higher Learning Commission
hlcommission.org | 800-621-7440

Rasmussen College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, a regional accreditation agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Various Types of Accreditation at Rasmussen College

Regional Accreditation

There are six major regional accrediting bodies in the United States, each overseeing a particular region of the country. Regional accreditation ensures that an institution's academic program meets acceptable levels of quality. Regionally accredited colleges and universities typically accept credits from other regionally accredited institutions; however, each individual institution may decide which transfer credits to accept. Achieving regional accreditation places a private, career-focused establishment like Rasmussen College among a select group of educational institutions.

Programmatic Accreditation

Programmatic, specialized or professional accreditation is given to specific programs or areas of study within an institution that has already received accreditation from a separate accrediting body, such as regional accreditation. The accreditation process is based on peer review and established standards, including a focus on academic quality and learner support. Programmatic accreditation allows individual programs to distinguish their curriculum and faculty within their specific fields.

State Authorizations and Licensing

State authorization/licensing is the process of complying with state higher education regulations. Rasmussen College maintains state authorization in order to operate campuses across six states and to enroll students into online programs nationwide.
