Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE)

Monroe Community College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). MSCHE is the unit of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools that accredits degree-granting colleges and universities in the Middle States region, which includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and several locations internationally.

In 2008-2009, MCC began the process of reorienting its assessment and evaluation processes to more closely align with MSCHE standards and practices. This strategy shift has positioned the College well, not only for meeting standards for accreditation, but also for developing an assessment program that focuses more on continuous improvement. With the passage of reforms to the SUNY Assessment Initiative in March 2010 by the state’s SUNY Board of Trustees, MCC’s approach to assessment as being focused on educational improvement was validated.

In June 2011, MCC successfully submitted its Periodic Review Report (PRR) to MSCHE, an interim self-review. The College’s accreditation status was affirmed, with the next self-study report, and visit, scheduled for 2015-2016.

These are some of the more recent publications from the MSCHE.

You can review MCC’s self-study report, or the MSCHE team response to that report.
