Make a Public Oral Comment  

The Commission has encouraged member institutions, students, and the public to better understand the recognition process and consider providing public comments when opportunities to do so become available. The Commission’s appearance before NACIQI is another opportunity to engage in this process as you can register to make public oral comments during our appearance. You can find the instructions to register to provide public oral comments in the Federal Register. The deadline to do so is also indicated there. 

MSCHE would like to express our appreciation to the individuals who have already been scheduled to make public oral comments as well as to any others who will register to speak during our appearance.
