MSCHE Formally Unveils Revised Accreditation Standards


At its annual conference, which concluded on Friday, December 9, 2022, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) unveiled the revisions it has made to its existing accreditation standards. The wording has been changed somewhat to add clarity. Diversity, equity, and inclusion have been infused into the revised standards. Most of the Requirements of Affiliation have also been added to the standards. In the coming months, MSCHE will describe the kind of evidence that can demonstrate that institutions are in compliance with each of the standards.

The full revisions can be found here.
