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 New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). 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 NECHE 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 NECHE. 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.
American International College will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit in the Spring 2019 semester, by a team representing the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, NEASC).
The New England Commission 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 220 institutions in the six-state New England region as well as several American-style institutions overseas.
American International College has been accredited by the Commission since 1933 and was last reviewed in March 2009. Its accreditation by the Commission encompasses the entire institution.
For the past year and a half, American International College has been engaged in a process of selfstudy, 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 Comment on (name of institution)
New England Commission of Higher Education
3 Burlington Woods Drive, Suite 100
Burlington, MA 01803-4514
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 of the person providing the comments. Public Comments must be received by (last day of evaluation). The Commission cannot guarantee that comments received after that date will be considered.
