In addition to the Standards for Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE or the Commission) provides a comprehensive set of documents supporting the accreditation review protocol and related activities.

The Commission has the following types of documents: policy statement, accreditation policy, administrative policy, procedures, guidelines, and templates (request forms) which are defined in the policy Review of Standards, Requirements of Affiliation, and Policies. In keeping with the Commission’s approach to policy development, each policy is accompanied by a set of procedures. The Commission may also develop guidelines to support and guide institutions, peer evaluators, and the Commission in the conduct of peer review and accreditation decision making.

The Commission’s systematic process for reviewing its standards for accreditation, requirements of affiliation, and policies provides an opportunity for member institutions and other interested parties to review proposed accreditation policies and provide input.
