Middle States Commission on Higher Education Announces Actions from Its June 2021 Meeting

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) has made public the accreditation actions approved at its June 24, 2021, virtual meeting. Among the 94 actions taken by the Commission, it acted to:

Davis College and St. Francis College remain accredited while in non-compliance. Federal regulations limit the period during which an institution may be in non-compliance.

Davis College must show cause by September 1, 2021, as to why their accreditation should not be withdrawn. The institution is required to present its case for continued accreditation by means of a show cause report documenting evidence that the institution has achieved and can sustain ongoing compliance with Commission’s Standards for Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation and policies. The institution will also be invited to present before the Commission when it meets to consider the institution’s show cause report, which is expected in November.
