New England Association of Schools 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.
