The University of Hartford's accreditation has been extended another decade, authorities say.
University President Walter Harrison received formal notification last week from the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
The letter also praised the 55-year-old institution for "unparalleled resurgence" over the past decade, school officials said Wednesday.
All NEASC-accredited schools undergo a comprehensive review every 10 years; UHart's last was in 2011.
As part of the review process, the University conducted an in-depth self-study and a NEASC visiting team spent three days on campus last October. The school was initially accredited in 1961 and has been continuously accredited since that time. The next comprehensive evaluation is set for fall 2021.
The university has 7,000 students.
