Continuous Quality Improvement Program at NC State

North Central State College (NC State) is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and is approved by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Board of Regents. 

NC State  was accepted into the HLC's Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) in 2005. The continuous quality improvement program "infuses the principles and benefits of continuous improvement into the culture of colleges and universities by providing an alternative process through which an already-accredited institution can maintain its accreditation.  With our continuous quality improvement focus, the college "demonstrates it meets accreditation standards and expectations through sequences of events that align with ongoing activities that characterize organizations striving to improve their performance."  (


North Central State College's Current Status as an Continuous Quality Improvement Institution

NC State  hosted an AQIP Quality Check-up Visit in November 2010, submitted our Quality Highlights report in August 2011 and our new/updated Systems Portfolio in November 2011, and received a recommendation for Reaffirmation of Accreditation and the Systems Appraisal Feedback Report in February 2012. 

More information about North Central State College's participation in AQIP can be obtained by emailing the NC State AQIP Liaison, Gina Kamwithi.
