MSCHE Virtual Site Visit Set for April 12 – 15
NYMC submitted its MSCHE Self-Study and will be hosting a virtual visit of MSCHE peer team evaluators this April.
Regional accreditation through the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and is required for students to be eligible to receive federal financial aid. Thus, the operation of New York Medical College (NYMC) and all of its schools and programs are dependent on MSCHE accreditation.
MSCHE, through accreditation, mandates that its member institutions meet rigorous and comprehensive standards, which are addressed in the context of the mission of each institution and within the culture of ethical practices and institutional integrity expected of accredited institutions. The re-accreditation process, every eight years, includes a comprehensive Self-Study engaging senior leadership, faculty, staff and students and is designed to promote self-reflection and evaluation so that the College can assess how well it has been advancing its mission and goals and identify opportunities for improvement. NYMC submitted its MSCHE Self-Study and will be hosting a virtual visit of MSCHE peer team evaluators on April 12-15 to discuss the College and Self-Study in the context of the College mission and goals and Strategic Plan.
