IU Southeast has chosen the Open Pathway option for accreditation review. The next full review and visit will occur in 2019-20. We were permitted to begin uploading documents to the evidence file in 2014-15.

The Quality Initiative Proposal deadline is 2016-17. However, IU Southeast applied and was accepted into the HLC Retention Academy. Participation in the Academy fulfills the Quality Initiative requirement. Please review the application for details.

For additional details regarding the timeline, see the HLC Open Pathway Transition Map.
