Accreditation at NYU

Self-Study at NYU

Our accreditation is subject to review every eight years, when NYU must demonstrate ongoing institutional compliance with MSCHE standards of accreditation. This entails the preparation of a self-study report and a site visit by an evaluation team. NYU also annually submits data on student success and financial results in the MSCHE annual institutional update. These data are aggregated and reviewed every four years in the mid-point peer review.

NYU will next undergo a self-study and site visit for reaccreditation in 2023-2024.
