This brochure explains the process of higher education accreditation, describes the role of various institutions in accreditation, and offers answers to frequently asked questions. The first half discusses accreditation in general and explains what accreditation is, the difference between institutional and specialized accreditation, the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, the Commission on Higher Education, and the nature of the Commission's accreditation standards. The second half of the booklet contains a sampling of questions that the Commission often receives such as who develops accreditation standards and major policies, whether standards are published, how often institutions are evaluated, how evaluations are conducted, who does the Commission's work, the difference between Commission accreditation and state approval, whether institutions ever lose accreditation, whether the Commission ranks colleges, what information about colleges and universities the Commission provides, whether the Commission can recommend a college to a student, credit transfer standards, the location of academic records when institutions merge, grievance procedures against the Commission, and accreditation of specific programs. A list of regional accrediting associations and other institutional accrediting organizations is included. (JB)
