Invitation of Public Comments

Deree-The American College of Greece is accredited in the United States by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). NEASC-accredited institutions undergo a comprehensive evaluation every 10 years.

Deree-The American College of Greece will undergo its comprehensive evaluation visit in April 2016, by a team representing the Commission of Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

The Commission on Institutions of Higher Education is one of seven accrediting commissions in the United States that provide institutional accreditation on a regional basis.  Accreditation is voluntary and applies to the institution as a whole. The Commission, which is recognized by the United States Department of Education, accredits approximately 240 institutions in the six-state New England region of the United States, as well as a number of institutions outside the United States.

Deree-The American College of Greece has been accredited by the Commission since 1981 and was last reviewed in 2006. Its accreditation by the New England Association encompasses the entire institution.

For the past year and a half, Deree-The American College of Greece has been engaged in a process of self-study, addressing the Commission’s Standards for Accreditation. An evaluation team will visit the institution to gather evidence that the self-study is thorough and accurate. The team will recommend to the Commission a continuing status for the institution. Following a review process, the Commission itself will take the final action.

The public is invited to submit comments regarding the institution to:

Public Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of the institution. The Commission cannot settle disputes between individuals and institutions, whether those involve faculty, students, administrators, or members of other groups. Comments will not be treated as confidential and must include the name, address, and telephone number and/or email address of the person providing the comments.

Public Comments must be received by April 1, 2016. The commission cannot guarantee that comments received after that date will be considered.
