Institutional Accreditation

Maine College of Health Professions is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE): 3 Burlington Woods #100 Burlington, MA 01803 (855) 886-3272 info@neche.org https://www.neche.org/

Maine College of Health Professions is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.). Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Commission indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer group review process. An accredited school or college is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.

Accreditation by the Commission is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of the quality of every course or program offered or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.

Inquiries regarding the status of an institution’s accreditation by the Commission should be directed to the administrative staff of the College. Individuals may also contact the Commission at the address above.
