As an accredited university, Chancellor University holds both college-specific and program-specific accreditations. Accreditation is desirable as it speaks to the quality of the college or university, acknowledged by peer institutions. In choosing a university, parents and students should ensure their university of choice is regionally accredited.

Regional accreditation in higher education originated almost a century ago as an American process conferred by a nongovernmental agency. Becoming an accredited university provides quality assurance and ensures institutional program improvement. The agency's expert and trained peers have visited and reviewed Chancellor University. During the visit, Chancellor University is reviewed from a variety of facets, including: educational activities, administration, financial stability, admissions and student personnel services, resources, student academic achievement, organizational effectiveness, and relationships with outside constituencies.

Six regional agencies provide institutional accreditation on a geographical basis - Middle States, New England, North Central, Northwest, Southern, and Western. While independent of one another, the six regional associations cooperate extensively and recognize one another's accreditation.

The Higher Learning Commission and its predecessor have accredited Chancellor University continually since 1978, obtaining its most recent reaccreditation in 2011. Chancellor University holds a certificate of authorization from the Ohio Board of Regents and is licensed by the Ohio State Board of Career Colleges and Schools.
