Accreditation & Self-Study

NEW YORK UNIVERSITY is accredited by:

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education
3624 Market Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104-2680
(267) 284-5000

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) is one of six regional accrediting associations in the United States. Every ten years, our accreditation is subject to review, to ensure the institution's compliance with standards of accreditation. This entails the preparation of a self-study report and a site visit by an evaluation team. Five years after the decennial review, the University is required to submit a Periodic Review Report.

While many institutions do a comprehensive self-study report, MSCHE permits the use of what they call a selected topics approach: focusing on an issue(s) of specific importance to the institution, without requiring a comprehensive analysis of its programs and services and without having to address all of the accreditation standards in the self-study report itself. In this case, under new MSCHE guidelines, compliance with standards not covered in the self-study is demonstrated through submission of documents earlier in the self-study process. As it has done in the past, New York University has chosen to use the selected topics approach, and its 2014 self-study will focus on multi-school collaborations.
