Monroe Community College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is a voluntary, non-governmental, institutional membership association currently serving higher education institutions in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and other geographic areas in which the Commission conducts accrediting activities. You can review recent publications from the MSCHE to find out more about assessment and accreditation standards.
In 2009-2010, 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 academic year 2015-2016, MCC successfully completed its decennial self-study. You can review MCC's Self-Study Report. Monroe Community College’s accreditation status was reaffirmed in 2016, and its next self-study evaluation is due in academic year 2025-26.
