The institutional members of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) have overwhelmingly voted to endorse the revised Standards for Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation as presented. The revised standards will go into effect on July 1, 2023. This site will be updated as more information is released. Please visit MSCHE.org for more details.
The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) is a voluntary, non-governmental, membership association that defines, maintains, and promotes educational excellence across institutions with diverse missions, student populations, and resources. Because MSCHE is an institutional accreditor, we examine institutions as a whole rather than specific programs within institutions. MSCHE provides education, quality assurance, and other services to members. (MSCHE.org, About us)
MSCHE uses the Annual Institutional Update (AIU) as a way to monitor institutions through an annual review of key data indicators.
