Montana Tech of The University of Montana is accredited through the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). In spring 2010, Montana Tech was visited by a NWCCU Evaluation Committee concluding the 10-year accreditation cycle. Following this visit, Montana Tech began addressing the revised NWCCU standards within the revised oversight cycle.
In the new seven-year cycle, Montana Tech will address the following five standards:
- Mission, Core Themes, and Expectations;
- Resources and Capacity;
- Planning and Implementation;
- Effectiveness and Improvement; and,
- Mission Fulfillment, Adaptation, and Sustainability.
In spring 2011, the Accreditation Steering Committee (ASC) submitted Tech's Year One Report for Standard 1. In spring 2014, Tech’s Year Three Report for Standard 2 was submitted and a remote visit is scheduled for March 26, 27, and 28. The accreditation reports represent the efforts of faculty, staff, and students.
