CLC prepares for accreditation visit


Central Lakes College, Brainerd and Staples, is seeking renewal of accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission, a division of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

Since 1972, accreditation visits by review teams have resulted in sustained accreditation that ensures student access to education that transfers credits to baccalaureate institutions. It is seen as a stamp of approval with regard to grants, loans, and valued certification from employers.
