Colorado’s Jesuit University Fulfills Core Requirements

April 10, 2019

Regis University’s accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) has been reaffirmed following a comprehensive review of the University’s academic offerings, governance and administration, mission, finances and resources.  The HLC conducts comprehensive reviews of member institutions every 10 years; Regis University’s next comprehensive evaluation is scheduled for 2028.

Regis, Colorado’s Jesuit, Catholic university, demonstrated it meets all core components during HLC’s site visit last year. The accreditation was formally approved by the HLC’s Institutional Actions Council in March. 

“HLC’s report is a reaffirmation of Regis as a community,” Provost Janet Houser said. “Each of our community members is inspired by our mission and devote many of their gifts to making Regis a jewel in the Jesuit crown.” 

Regis was first accredited in 1922 and has been continuously accredited since 1952. The last comprehensive evaluation was completed in 2008. 

Established in 1877, Regis University is a premier, globally engaged institution of higher learning in the Jesuit Catholic tradition that prepares leaders to live productive lives of faith, meaning and service. One of 28 Jesuit universities in the nation, Regis has four campus locations in the Denver metro area and Colorado Springs and extensive online program offerings with more than 10,000 enrolled students.
