"The most recognized and accepted type of accreditation in the United States is Regional Accreditation. Generally, college credits or degrees received at a Regionally Accredited institution are accepted by other Regionally Accredited colleges or universities (non-regionally accredited programs are not as accepted)."
"Don't let the name mislead you - regional accreditation is the highest level of accreditation an online or brick-and-mortar institution can obtain, and is recognized throughout the country. Regional associations accredit mainly nonprofit, degree-granting institutions in specific geographic areas (Middle States, New England, North Central, Northwest, Southern, or Western)."
The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) is an independent corporation and one of two Commission members of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), which was founded in 1895 as one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States. The Higher Learning Commission accredits, and thereby grants membership in the Commission and in the North Central Association, to degree-granting educational institutions in the North Central region: Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, New Mexico, South Dakota, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
HLC is recognized by the US Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

Saint Xavierís Catholic tradition promotes ethical development, service to the community, and a search for truth via observation, analysis, and debate. We have a long history of educating students to prepare them for professional success and lay the foundation for personal fulfillment with values such as to explore and respect different viewpoints, work for the betterment of the community, and engage students in the pursuit of lifelong learning.
