Annual Institutional Update

The Annual Institutional Update, or AIU, is one of the approaches used by the Commission to monitor an institution in accordance with the Accreditation Review Cycle and Monitoring Policy and Procedures. The AIU requires institutions to provide key data indicators on an annual basis, including but not limited to enrollment, financial information, and measures of student achievement. Every year institutions enter or verify institutional data and upload required documentation. The data submitted from the AIU are aggregated into trends for use in other monitoring and review processes.

AIU Snapshot Report

The AIU Snapshot Report provides the key data elements collected from the AIU. This report is identical to the data report provided to peer evaluators for the Mid-Point Peer Review. The primary difference is that this report does not show the data for a single institution, but instead provides the average values for all MSCHE member institutions. The report provides insights into the overall performance of MSCHE member institution’s as well as an example of how peer evaluators receive institution data during review.

To aid you in navigating the report we have provided a brief tutorial:
