Academic excellence at Governors State University demands that we meet the most rigorous standards. The university is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

But we go further than that. Every one of our programs either has earned or is seeking appropriate professional accreditation, wherever that kind of accreditation exists and is recognized by the profession. Many cross lines between colleges. Programs that do not have a recognized accrediting body are put through an intensive external review by expert evaluators. Our students deserve nothing less than the highest academic standards.
