Middle State Accreditation

The 2020 Reaccreditation of the Graduate School and University Center

The Graduate School and University Center is embarking on its reaccreditation effort by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.

What is Middle States Accreditation?

The Graduate School and University Center is accredited through a voluntary, peer-review process coordinated by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE or Middle States).  As one of the schools and programs under the auspice of the University Center, Macaulay Honors College will participate in this reaccreditation process.

Middle States is the accrediting body for higher education institutions in the mid-Atlantic region. Schools accredited by Middle States go through a reaccreditation every eight years. As its mission states, “The Middle States Commission on Higher Education assures students and the public of the educational quality of higher education. The Commission’s accreditation process ensures institutional accountability, self-appraisal, improvement, and innovation through peer review and the rigorous application of standards within the context of institutional mission.”
