As an institution of higher learning, Southeastern has had multiple successful accreditations. Our most recent accreditation visit by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) was April 2008. We are proud to announce the HLC awarded Southeastern with the maximum accreditation period of ten years with no focus visits. Our assessment and strategic planning processes were cited as exemplary, as was our self-study process and document. Aside from a monitoring report on improved communications, the college maintained its successful streak of not having a focused visit, a great and rare feat for any college or university. Prior to this accreditation, Southeastern has had two visits, held in 1988 and 1998, and was awarded a ten-year accreditation on both occasions. The College was granted its first full accreditation in 1976, less than a decade after it was granted an Illinois Class I Community College status.

SIC is also recognized and monitored by Illinois Community College Board, Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations, and Illinois Department of Public Health affirms the currency and rigor of campus programs.
