About Middle States

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) is an institutional accreditor recognized by the United States Department of Education that serves as an independent voice in higher education. MSCHE establishes equitable standards for accreditation with member institutions that advance the impact of accreditation in the ever-changing landscape of higher education and promotes educational excellence through innovation across diverse institutions.

As an institutional accreditor, MSCHE requires evaluation of all aspects of the institution holistically and everything done in the name of the institution, including all academic programs, services, and modality of instruction, fall within the scope of accreditation.
