Academic accreditation plays a vital role in maintaining and strengthening quality academic standards for traditional and online colleges and universities. As a leading Christian university, Ouachita Baptist University was first accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Universities in 1927 and has held continuous accreditation since 1953.

Ouachita’s Higher Learning Commission accreditation most recently was reaffirmed in 2011. The university received accreditation for its online programs in 2014.
