Every ten years, North Shore Community College undergoes an external review of its regional accreditation by a visiting team of peers representing the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). Accordingly, a comprehensive evaluation and self-study was conducted in October 2019 to serve as the basis for that review. At the conclusion of the process in May 2020, the Commission notified the College that it would be continued in accreditation. NSCC’s next comprehensive evaluation and self-study will be scheduled for fall 2029.
For addition information, please refer to the following documents of accreditation:
- NSCC Accreditation Self-Study: August 2019
- Report of the Peer Visiting Team: October 2019
- Letter of continued accreditation from NECHE: May 2020
As is expected of all NECHE member institutions, the College will submit a Fifth-Year Interim Report in fall 2024 to update the Commission on its progress and efforts toward continuous improvement. The Commission may also require additional reporting throughout the accreditation cycle to address significant institutional changes and other related matters.
