Greenwood Village, CO (PRWEB) July 20, 2011
Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSU-Global), the nation’s leading public online university for adult and non-traditional learners, has received independent accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), the regional accrediting body for the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
“This is a significant accomplishment,” said Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, President of CSU-Global Campus. “CSU-Global’s accreditation status affirms its innovative approach to meeting the changing needs of higher education, and its unique mission as a public institution serving nontraditional adult learners through high quality, affordable online programs.”
The first public university in Colorado to be accredited in 40 years, CSU-Global Campus looks to continue to drive new initiatives specific to the needs of nontraditional learners in Colorado and beyond. CSU-Global meets the demands of its adult students who benefit from the public university’s 100% online programs, flexible start schedule, affordable tuition, and superior student support.
