Office of Accreditation and Assessment
Teachers College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), a regional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
MSCHE accredits degree-granting colleges and universities in the Middle States region, which includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and several locations internationally. 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.
