Dixie State University Accreditation
Dixie State University has been accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities since 1945. DSU's latest affirmation of accreditation was awarded January 8, 2014, on the basis of its Year One Mission and Core Theme Report.
Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities 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.
Inquiries regarding Dixie State University's accredited status by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities should be directed to Dr. Debra Bryant, DSU's Accreditation Liaison Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or 435-879-4281.
