Horizon University participates in institutional assessment and outcome tracking in order to collect and analyze data for the purpose of identification and implementation of policy, practices, and procedures that result in improvements in both the student experience and Horizon University’s educational effectiveness.

A summary of this information is made available to the public each year within 60 days of receipt of the data from our Institutional Effectiveness consultant (see PDF links below) and annual reporting to the Association of Biblical Higher Education (see table below).
