The Commission on Institutions of Higher Education is one of seven accrediting commissions in the United States that provide institutional accreditation on a regional basis. Accreditation is voluntary and applies to the institution as a whole.

New England College has been accredited by the Commission since 1967, and was last reviewed in 2004. Its accreditation by the New England Association encompasses the entire institution.
For the past year and a half, New England College has been engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission’s Standards for Accreditation. An evaluation team will visit New England College to gather evidence that the self-study is thorough and accurate. The team will recommend to the Commission a continuing status for the College. The Commission will take final action following the review process.
