Policies for Approval
At its meeting on June 22, 2017, the Commission voted to approve the following policies. The Chief Executive Officer of each member institution will be sent a ballot for membership vote.
Communication in the Accreditation Process
In order to eliminate duplication and confusion, several MSCHE policies were reviewed and merged. Formerly titled Public Communication in the Accreditation Process, this single document combines the relevant content of Public Communication in the Accreditation Process, Notification of Accreditation Decisions, and Commission Reporting to the U.S. Department of Education.
Formerly titled Advertising, Student Recruitment, and Representation of Accredited Status, this document focuses more specifically on the institution's provision of published information to its constituents. The section on Student Recruitment has been removed from this policy and will be considered separately.
