Become a Peer Evaluator

The application to become a peer evaluator is open. Individuals must apply by completing pre-screening questions and submitting an Evaluator Data Form (EDF). Please allow the Commission six weeks to review your application and inform you of your status.



Serving as a peer evaluator can benefit both you and your institution by building your network of professionals, learning about best practices at other institutions, and furthering your knowledge and expertise with the accreditation process.


Peer evaluators who accept an invitation to an assignment are required to abide by the Peer Evaluators Policy and Procedures, complete a Conflict of Interest Form, certify a Statement of Ethical Conduct, and an Antitrust Certification of Compliance.


The Commission seeks competent, knowledgeable, and qualified higher education professionals with three or more years of experience at a college or university, individuals currently employed at an MSCHE member institution, and individuals with expertise that meets the Commission’s current needs.


Training events are provided in a variety of educational delivery options including face-to-face training, webinars, and online modules. The Commission will inform accepted peer evaluators of the training requirements and schedule.


The Commission staff carefully analyzes, selects, and invites peer evaluators to assignments based on the Commission’s current needs and the information provided in the Evaluator Data Form (EDF). When chosen for an assignment, peer evaluators are expected to respond to invitations in a timely manner.

The types of assignments are listed in the Accreditation Activities Guidelines.
