NEASC Re-Accreditation

Welcome to the American International College re-accreditation site. Colleges and universities in New England have a regular 10-year cycle of review by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) a division of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Accreditation has two fundamental purposes – to assure the quality of the institution or program, and to assist in the improvement of the institution or program. The NEASC CIHE Accreditation Process consists of three distinct components: institutional self-study, visiting team on-site evaluation, and commission review and action. American International College is currently in the first stage, which involves the creation of a comprehensive self-study report addressing the 9 Standards for Accreditation of the CIHE. Details about our approach to the comprehensive self-study are available to the AIC community (log-in required) on myAIC. This site provides information about accreditation and documents related to the self-study process.

The second stage, a visit to campus by a team of peer evaluators, will take place in the Spring ’19 semester. The final stage is receipt of the team’s written evaluation and recommendations followed by a meeting with the Commission.

Invitation for Public Comments

American International College will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit in the Spring 2019 semester, by a team representing the Commission on 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 U.S. Department of Education, accredits approximately 240 institutions in the six-state New England region. 

American International College has been accredited by the Commission since 1933 and was last reviewed in March 2009. Its accreditation by the New England Association encompasses the entire institution. American International College is currently 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:
