Following this visit, Montana Tech began addressing the next 7 year accreditation cycle.  The Spring 2018 Year One Report and Spring 2020 Mid Cycle Report addressed the NWCCU 2010 five standards:

  1. Mission, Core Themes, and Expectations
  2. Resources and Capacity
  3. Planning and Implementation

  5. Mission Fulfillment, Adaptation, and Sustainability

Future Evaluations will address the two NWCCU 2020 Standards:

The institution is currently preparing for the Year 6 – Standard 2 – Policies, Regulations, and Financial Review in Spring 2023 and a Year 7 – Evaluation of Institutional Effectiveness in Spring 2024.
