The Academic Quality Improvement Program, or AQIP, is an accreditation process developed by the Higher Learning Commission. It is LLCC's path to maintaining its accreditation. Through participation in this process, we strive to infuse the principles of continuous improvement into the college culture through ongoing improvement activities that support our primary mission - helping students learn. Results of those improvement activities are documented and reported back to the Commission to evidence meeting the Criteria for Accreditation. The Commission will then use this evidence in the process of reaffirming LLCC's accreditation.
