Annual Institutional Update

The Annual Institutional Update, or AIU, is the Commission’s primary means of collecting our members’ institutional characteristics (key institutional contacts, locations, Carnegie classification, etc.), enrollment, financial, and “student success” (including graduation, loan repayment, and default rates) information. The AIU is part of MSCHE monitoring activities contained within MSCHE policy on Accreditation Review Cycle and Monitoring.

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:
