Accreditation

The New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education, has extended the College’s accreditation, indicating that Assumption meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process.

Accreditation of an institution of higher education by NECHE indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one that 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.
