Policies to be Withdrawn by the Commission

Two policies will be withdrawn by the Commission as of June 30, 2020. The documents can currently be found in the Policies Under Review section until the date of withdrawal, at which point they will be removed from the website. The Commission maintains an archive of withdrawn policies and procedures.

Separately Accreditable Institutions

This policy statement was established as an inter-regional policy in response to a federal requirement that a member institution which operated sites outside of the region should obtain separate accreditation for those sites. MSCHE will unilaterally determine the geographic areas in which it will operate.

Institutions Located Outside the United States

The amended MARCHE Bylaws (as of July 1, 2020) provide the Commission broad authority to accredit institutions in geographic areas in which the Commission elects to conduct accrediting activities. This policy is being withdrawn because it conflicts with that amended language. The policy also contains outdated references to renamed or withdrawn policies or procedures.
