The Higher Learning Commission has made a ruling of “Accreditation-On Notice” at the conclusion of Bethel's regular every-10-years accreditation process.
College administrators had been informed earlier this year, after the peer review team’s site visit in May, that the team’s recommendation would be for probation. “On Notice” represents an important shift.
In either case, the college remains accredited. Credits from Bethel will be accepted for transfer or for graduate programs, and financial aid will continue to be dispersed.
