Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Commission 500 Internal Server Error

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application.

Accreditation by the Commission is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.

Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by the Commission should be directed to the Office of Institutional Research. Individuals may also contact:

Once every ten years, the College undergoes re-accreditation, and the College's next accreditation visit will come in 2029.
