We are proud to feature a selection of Accreditations and Achievements that support the value of your education at Granite State College.
New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE)
Granite State College is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.), one of six regional accreditors recognized by the United States Secretary of Education and by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation.
Accreditation by the Commission is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by the Commission should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:

Because accreditation is a process of self-regulation, it requires that institutions engage periodically in a comprehensive and candid self-study of their own strengths and weaknesses. Self-study is at the heart of accreditation, serving both external and internal purposes: quality assurance and institutional improvement through rigorous self-analysis. It also provides a basis for the Commission’s evaluation in accordance with its Standards for Accreditation.”
