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. 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.
