The Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) has announced the University of Northwestern Ohio has been granted institutional reauthorization through December 31, 2026 to offer Associate of Applied Business, Associate of Applied Science, Bachelor of Science, and Master of Business Administration degree designations. 

Speaking of the reauthorization by the ODHE, Dr. Jeffrey A. Jarvis, UNOH President, said, “I take great pride in being part of an institution which has a goal of educating individuals to become productively employed in their chosen career paths and providing a campus environment which encourages students to get involved in campus life, maintain better grades, and establish lasting friendships.  The reauthorization by ODHE for a period of 10 years is a great accomplishment and a testament to UNOH’s commitment to higher education.”

 “The reauthorization from the Ohio Department of Higher Education ensures our students that they have made a quality choice by attending the University of Northwestern Ohio,” said Dr. Dean Hobler, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. “The university is committed to offering quality education in business, health professions, occupational professions, and applied technology fields at the associate, baccalaureate, and master degree levels.”

While the scheduled date of the next reauthorization will occur during the 2026 calendar year, the University of Northwestern Ohio faculty and staff will continue provide education in the current program offerings as well as find areas to expand degree programs where necessary.  The University of Northwestern Ohio has been authorized by the Ohio Department of Higher Education (formerly the Ohio Board of Regents) since 1992. UNOH is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
