Accreditation Statement

MCLA is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) - formally New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC).

MCLA received notification of our reaccreditation by NEASC in April 2014, following a campus visit in November 2013 by a team of NEASC peer reviews.

Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Commission indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.  Accreditation by the Commission is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole.  As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.

Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by the Commission should be directed to the Office of Academic Affairs.
