The Standards of Accreditation are qualitative and have been developed to address the distinct needs of the educational institutions served by each of the NEASC Commissions. An institution found to be out of alignment with the Standards is usually given time to take corrective action. Once the time allowed for appeal by an institution of adverse action (i.e, denial of candidacy, termination of candidacy, denial of accreditation, placement on probation, termination of accreditation) has elapsed, a public announcement of Association action is released. In such cases the effective date, the reason(s) for the action taken, and the Commission’s plans to monitor or work with the institution are stated.
Please refer to each Commission to view the Standards appropriate for your school.
