About the New England Commission on Higher Education (NECHE)
NECHE became the federally recognized regional accreditor for the six New England states in July, 2018 when the U.S. Department of Education officially transferred federal recognition from New England Association of Schools and College’s (NEASC) Commission on Institutions of Higher Education to NECHE. Having separated from NEASC, NECHE now fully meets the federal requirement that it be separate and independent of any other organization. The Standards for Accreditation and NECHE’s policies and procedures remain the same as the former NEASC Commission on Institutions of Higher Education. NECHE values its history with NEASC, tracing its roots to the oldest quality assurance agency in the higher education world.
Accreditation is a system of accountability designed to help maintain standards of education. Accredited colleges volunteer for peer review, self-study and comprehensive evaluations. Students looking for programs can be confident that an accredited institution is subject to periodic review by peers.
