Accreditations

Long Island University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, 3624 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104. (267-284-5000) www.msche.org. The MSCHE is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

Once every eight years, the University undergoes a comprehensive process of self-assessment and peer review in order to ensure that it meets the Commission’s standards for accreditation, set forth in its Standards for Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation. The University’s mission statement serves as the lens through which the institution and the Commission’s evaluation team view the standards and apply them to the University.
