Consumer Information & Assurance Argument

The U.S. Department of Education requires that we provide “consumer" information to prospective students and their families and to current students, faculty and staff. Following is a list of the information we are required to provide, with links to webpages, additional information about where to obtain the information, and the individual at Antioch College who can assist you with questions, concerns or requests for paper copies.  

As part of Antioch College's evaluation for initial accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission, the College engaged in a self-study process to develop the College's Assurance Argument. The Assurance Argument Steering Committee and Criterion Teams led this process with a goal of making it inclusive, meaningful, and improvement-driven while also meeting the HLC's criteria for accreditation. The Executive Summary and Assurance Argument that resulted from this process are provided below.

  • Executive Summary - The Executive Summary provides key institutional numbers, indices of success, the process of compiling the Assurance Argument, and the progress that we have made since the Candidacy visit. It also contains a summary of our response to each of the HLC’s five criteria.
  • Assurance Argument - The Assurance Argument, which was submitted to the Higher Learning Commission, demonstrates how we are meeting and will continue to meet the Higher Learning Commission's Five Criteria for Accreditation.
  • Executive Summary and Assurance Argument - This document contains both the Executive Summary and the Assurance Argument.

  1. School and program accreditation, approval, or licensure: Antioch College has been named a candidate for accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission. Antioch’s request to be considered for early initial accreditation was also approved, meaning that after hosting a comprehensive evaluation visit, the College can expect a determination on accreditation to be made in June 2016—two years earlier than allowed by the traditional candidacy path. To earn and maintain candidacy, an institution must fully meet the Commission’s Eligibility Requirements and Assumed Practices and demonstrate the capacity to meet all the Criteria for Accreditation within the candidacy period.
