FAQ regarding the Middle States Commission on Higher Education's action on June 28, 2019

Is Concordia College accredited?
Yes. The College remains accredited and will continue to grant degrees. Concordia has up to two years to demonstrate full compliance with the standards set by its accrediting agency, The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), and we are working diligently and in close contact with MSCHE to do that.
What is the Middle States Commission on Higher Education?
From the website:
The Mid-Atlantic Region Commission on Higher Education, doing business as the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), was formally incorporated under Pennsylvania Commonwealth law on March 1, 2013. From its origins in 1919 through February 2013, the Commission was a unit of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Although now an independent corporation, the Commission maintains an ongoing relationship with the Middle States Association.
The Commission on Higher Education is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education to conduct accreditation and pre-accreditation (candidacy status) activities for institutions of higher education in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, including distance education and correspondence education programs offered at those institutions. MSCHE is also recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) to accredit degree-granting institutions which offer one or more post-secondary educational programs of at least one academic year in length in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and other geographic areas in which the Commission conducts accrediting activities.
The Commission is a voluntary, non-governmental, membership association that defines, maintains, and promotes educational excellence across institutions with diverse missions, student populations, and resources. It examines each institution as a whole, rather than specific programs within institutions.
What happens next?
The College will submit a monitoring report to MSCHE detailing our progress toward compliance on March 1, 2020. In April 2020, a team from MSCHE will visit our campus. In June 2020, MSCHE will issue an updated action on the College’s accreditation.
How will I hear about updates?
Concordia College is committed to transparency in all its operations, and that applies to the accreditation process as well. All key updates will be posted on our website.
