Manchester Community College (MCC) will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit on October 16-18, 2017 by a team representing the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
NEASC accreditation is voluntary and applies to the institution as a whole. The Commission, which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, accredits approximately 240 institutions in the six-state New England region.
MCC has been accredited by the Commission since 2002 and last underwent a comprehensive review in 2007. Accreditation by NEASC encompasses the entire institution.
For the past two years, MCC has been engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission's Standards for Accreditation. An evaluation team will visit the institution to gather evidence that the self-study is thorough and accurate. The team will recommend to the Commission a continuing status for the institution.
Following a review process, the Commission itself will take the final action.
The public is invited to submit comments regarding MCC to:
