Institutional Research



The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) is the unit of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools that accredits degree-granting colleges and universities in the Middle States region.

Standards of Accreditation

During SUNY Sullivan’s most recent Self-Study and accreditation review process in 2023, Middle States required institutions to demonstrate excellence in 14 Standards for accreditation. Since then, Middle States has adjusted its accreditation process and now evaluates institutions on seven (7)  Standards for Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation.

SUNY Sullivan is an Accredited institution and a member of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE or the Commission). SUNY Sullivan's accreditation status is Non-Compliance Warning. The Commission’s most recent action on the institution’s accreditation status on November 16, 2023 was to warn the institution. MSCHE is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education to conduct accreditation and pre-accreditation activities for institutions of higher education including distance, correspondence education, and direct assessment programs offered at those institutions. The Commission’s geographic area of accrediting activities is throughout the United States.
