Middle States Commission on Higher Education Reaccreditation

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) accredits degree-granting colleges and universities in the Middle States region: Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and several locations internationally. This is the Commission that will consider USUHS for institutional reaccreditation in 2013.

The Commission is a voluntary, non-governmental, membership association that defines, maintains, and promotes educational excellence across institutions with diverse missions, student populations, and resources. It examines each institution as a whole, rather than specific programs within institutions. For more information about MSCHE, visit

USU was first accredited by MSCHE in 1984. The university was reaccredited by MSCHE in 2013.
