Non-Compliance and Adverse Actions by Status

Actions taken by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE or the Commission) are posted in accordance with the Communication in the Accreditation Process Policy and Procedures. The Commission publicly displays a list of institutions in a non-compliance or adverse action status as part of its commitment to transparency and enhanced communication with all of its constituencies.

In accordance with the Accreditation Actions Policy and Procedures, a non-compliance action of warning, probation, or show cause means that the Commission has identified one or more areas in which the institution does not meet Commission standards for accreditation, requirements of affiliation, policies and procedures, or federal compliance requirements. An adverse action means that the institution has not been able to remedy any areas of non-compliance and the Commission has taken action to deny or withdraw candidate status or accreditation. Adverse actions are subject to appeal and the institution maintains its accreditation status until the institution’s appeal, if any is filed, is exhausted.  The Institution Directory provides information about institutions that are former candidates or formerly accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
