NECHE Standards

Institutions of higher learning achieve accreditation from the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) by demonstrating they meet the Commission's Standards for Accreditation and comply with its policies. The nine Standards establish criteria for institutional quality and were last updated in July 2016. The Commission expects affiliated institutions to work toward improving their quality, increasing their effectiveness, and continually striving toward excellence.
