Middle States Commission On Higher Education

Syracuse University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, 1007 North Orange Street, 4th floor, MB #166, Wilmington DE, 19801. The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

As required by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, Syracuse University must conduct a self-study of its academic and co-curricular programs and functional operations every 8 years to retain its Middle States accreditation. The next self-study will begin in fall 2024 and culminates with a Middle States peer review in spring 2027.

The self-study process identifies the University’s strengths and reveals areas that require improvement. The process is an inclusive effort, achieved by forming committees representing schools, colleges, departments and units from across the campus, maintaining a dialogue between the University and the community, and communicating in a way that guarantees visibility and transparency. The ultimate goal of ensuring our programs exceed the accreditation standards while reflecting our vision of a student-focused research university depends on the support of the Syracuse students, faculty, staff, and community.
