Quincy College Announcement

Quincy College, Quincy, MA 02169, will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit from November 6th to November 9th 2016, by a team representing the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of School and Colleges.

The Commission on Institutions of Higher Education is one of the seven accrediting commissions in the United States that provide institutional accreditation on a regional basis.  Accreditation is voluntary and applies to the institution as a whole.  The Commission, which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, is the regional accrediting body for 242 colleges and universities and eleven overseas institutions.

Quincy College has been accredited by the Commission since 1980 and was last reviewed in Fall 2006 (October 29, 2006 to November 1, 2006).  Its accreditation by the New England Association encompasses the entire institution.

For the past two years, Quincy College has been engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission’s Standards for Accreditation.  An evaluation team will visit the institution to gather evidence that the self-study is thorough and accurate.  The team will recommend to the Commission a continuing status for the institution; following a review process, the Commission itself will take the final action.

The public is invited to submit comments regarding the institution to:

The Commission cannot settle disputes between individuals, and institutions, whether those involve faculty, students, administrators, or members of other groups. Comments will not be treated as confidential and must include the name, address, and telephone number of the person providing the comments.

Public comments must be received by November 9th 2016.  The Commission cannot guarantee that comments received after the due date will be considered.
