The Middle States Commission On Higher Education

Goucher College is regionally accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), one of seven regional accrediting organizations in the United States.  MSCHE is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education to conduct accreditation and pre-accreditation 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 an institutional accreditor, therefore, it examines and reaffirms accreditation for each of its member institutions as a whole, rather than the specific programs within the institution.  

More information about Goucher’s accreditation status can be found on the Middle States website.
