The University of Saint Mary participates in the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP), a quality-based, continuous improvement model of institutional accreditation through the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

AQIP is a quality improvement program and a quality assurance program for higher education organizations. With AQIP, an institution provides the Higher Learning Commission with the evidence it needs both to make a public quality assurance judgment and to support and assist the institution in its efforts to excel at achieving the distinctive higher education mission it has set for itself.
