Path to Preeminence 

Metropolitan State University of Denver is committed to becoming the preeminent public urban university in the nation. Rigorous and regular assessment will help the University achieve that goal. Accreditation is one of the tools MSU Denver uses to take stock of its work and to ensure that the University is on track to fulfill its aspirations.   

MSU Denver is currently accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges. 

At this time, the University also is in the process of seeking reaffirmation of accreditation that will be finalized during the 2016-17 academic year.

The reaffirmation of accreditation process provides MSU Denver with an opportunity to assess itself, to share its story and to let the higher education community in the region and nation know about the transformational work happening here.
