Accreditation

All College Programs

Bellin College programs are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). This accreditation is reviewed in-depth by the HLC every 10 years. Our accreditation was reaffirmed in 2014.  In 2015, we received approval to expand Distance Education offerings and add a Sonography program, with our first graduating class in May 2019. In 2018, HLC approved the addition of a Doctor of Science in Physical Therapy program and in 2020 the addition of a bachelor’s degree in radiation therapy was approved.  Our next reaffirmation review is scheduled for 2024.
