The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) notified the College of Muscogee Nation (CMN) that the institution has received initial accreditation, marking a major milestone in CMN’s 12-year history. During that time, CMN was highly engaged and involved in the process of self-assessment, evaluating its programs and systems to determine consistency with the college’s mission, and in meeting HLC’s standards.

CMN meticulously followed all HLC guidelines and overcame many hurdles, including an eligibility study in 2008, a successful interview to establish accreditation eligibility in 2009, and a preliminary information document to prepare for candidacy in 2011. A self-study, site visit, and another successful interview by the HLC Institutional Actions Council were completed prior to receiving candidacy in 2012. This year, an assurance argument and accreditation site visit were completed, as well as a final interview by the Institutional Actions Council.

Robert Bible, president of CMN, stated, “Initial accreditation has always been a primary goal for CMN in building this college, and the momentum must continue.” Bible went on to note his appreciation for all the support the college has received: “We say mvto (thank you) to each of you. With this accreditation we will not stop growing but will continue to build and develop this college for the primary purpose of providing quality education for our students.”
