Self-Study Process 2019-2022
In order to maintain accreditation, Middle States member institutions must complete a self-study every eight years. The self-study is a two-year comprehensive process and requires the institution to review its programs, services, and operations with respect to Middle States’ Standards for Accreditation & Requirements for Affiliation and its own mission. The result is a detailed narrative featuring information and evidence-informed analysis relating to the institution’s strengths, achievements, and innovations. In addition to affirming compliance with these standards, institutions form recommendations for continuous improvement.
Also submitted to Middle States is a separate compliance report, documenting the policies and procedures in place that address selected requirements of affiliation and accreditation.
The Self-Study Report is reviewed for reaccreditation by peer evaluators and the MSCHE Commission.
