Middle States Accreditation

In Spring 2014 the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) approved new accreditation standards. Seven Standards for Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation replace the standards that the College used in its 2004 and 2014 self-studies.

Seven Standards for Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation

During spring 2017, the first 15 institutions were evaluated on the new standards. They provided feedback to MSCHE about the new requirements and agreed to be helpful to other institutions moving forward.

New processes and cycles also became effective Fall 2016. In adherence with these new processes, CCP has submitted Annual Institutional Updates (AIU) and participated in Mid-Point Peer Reviews (MPPR).

The Office of Assessment and Evaluation has been working with programs to create course- and program-level assessment practices that will ensure the smooth transfer of data from the program level to the peer review and self-study. In fall 2020, the College began the self-study process in preparation for a spring 2023 Middle States team visit. For more information, or to learn how to get involved, please contact the Steering Committee co-chairs at MSCHEselfstudy@ccp.edu."

The Standards for Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation will make demonstrating the College's effectiveness and impact more intuitive.
