Mitchell Technical Institute has received a recommendation for continued accreditation for ten years by the Higher Learning Commission, a commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Ten years is the maximum time period for which a school can receive accreditation. The recommendation for continued accreditation was made by a team of evaluators who visited the campus March 7-9. Their report and recommendation will be forwarded to the full Commission for approval later in 2011. MTI has been accredited since 1980.
