On December 22, 2016, Harrison signed a Provisional Program Participation Agreement (“PPPA”) with the U.S. Department of Education, which allows Harrison to maintain their accredited status and continue to participate in Title IV programs until June 12, 2018. According to the Department of Education, by signing this PPPA “the Secretary deems the institution to hold recognized accreditation” until June 12, 2018 “notwithstanding the loss of recognition of its accrediting agency.”
Harrison College has applied for accreditation with national accreditor, Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) and on January 19, 2017 we received notice from ABHES that Harrison College met ABHES’ initial eligibility requirements and that our application was in-process. ABHES will be visiting Harrison College campuses in April and May 2017; following these visits, Harrison College will be considered for full ABHES accreditation at ABHES Board Meeting scheduled for July 19-21, 2017. Its accreditation of degree-granting institutions is also recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Some accreditations are limited to specific campuses.
