All institutions of higher education in the Middle States region must apply for accreditation through this body – including community, technical and four-year schools.
In November 2013, Middle States informed the College of a decennial evaluation visit in spring 2016. As a part of this reaccrediting process, President B. Kaye Walter and the executive team established a comprehensive self-study model to address Middle States’ 14 Standards of Excellence and appointed a Self-Study Steering Committee to oversee the self-study process.
Why does Accreditation Matter?
- Credits are more easily transferred to four-year schools.
- Teaching and research efforts of the faculty are legitimized.
- Accredited institutions have access to federal grant money for faculty and financial aid for students
- The process invites the College to consider: How are we doing?
