The Catholic University of America is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), a voluntary, non-governmental, regional membership association currently serving higher education institutions in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and other geographic areas.

The MSCHE assures students and the public of the educational quality of higher education. The Commission's accreditation process ensures institutional accountability, self-appraisal, improvement, and innovation through peer review and the rigorous application of standards within the context of institutional mission.

The University received reaffirmation of accreditation in 2015, and our next Self-Study Review is due in 2020. Here is the link to our status including the Statement of Accreditation from the MSCHE website.
