Middle States Commission on Higher Education Reaffirms JCU's Accreditation

John Cabot University is pleased to announce that on June 21, 2018, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) acted:

To reaffirm accreditation and to commend the institution for the quality of the self-study report. The next evaluation visit is scheduled for 2026-2027.

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is a voluntary, non-governmental, peer-based membership association dedicated to educational excellence and improvement through peer-evaluation and accreditation. Accreditation by the Commission on Higher Education is an expression of confidence in an institution’s mission and goals, its performance and its resources. Accreditation by a regional accrediting association certifies to other educational institutions and the public that an institution has been evaluated, meets or exceeds established standards, and is achieving its own goals.

In order to prepare for reaccreditation, JCU conducted an extensive institutional Self-Study leading to a Self-Study Report that was submitted to MSCHE in Spring 2017.  Entitled “Leading the Future: Charting the Growth of a Student-Centered Global University,” the comprehensive Self-Study addressed each of MSCHE’s seven standards and requirements of affiliation.
