Accreditation History of UC Denver

From 1913-1970, all of the existing programs were accredited as part of the University of Colorado Boulder.  Programs at the University of Colorado Denver were first accredited independently in 1970 and the former University of Colorado Health Sciences Center (UCHSC) was first accredited independently in 1980.

The cycle for accreditation is typically ten years.  The previous accreditation visit to UCHSC occurred in 1998 and the previous visit to the Denver campus of the University of Colorado (UC) at Denver occurred in 2001.  Following the consolidation, the HLC conducted a visit that focused on the consolidation in 2005.

The visit by the HLC review team in April 2011 provides the university with a valuable opportunity for self-analysis, as well as an evaluation with experienced experts in higher education.
