Standards Mid-Course Review
The mid-course review of the Standards for Accreditation is undertaken in keeping with the Policy on the Revision and Review of Standards for Accreditation which specifies “At the fifth year of the ten-year standards review cycle, the Commission shall engage in an examination of application of the Standards for Accreditation to assure that these criteria have proven to be valid and reliable indicators of institutional quality.” The mid-course review is not meant to be a full-fledged review but rather is meant to ensure that the current Standards are up-to-date and useful.
The Commission approved the revised Standards for Accreditation at its November Commission Meeting. The revised standards, which go into effect on January 1, 2021, can be found here.
