I am pleased to announce that the Middle States Commission on Higher Education has granted the US Merchant Marine Academy full reaccreditation effective 16 November 2017. I thank all of the staff, faculty, and Midshipmen who worked so hard to achieve this milestone.
In accordance with Middle States’ transition to an eight year reaccreditation cycle, the Academy’s next full reaccreditation review will be in 2024.
All documents associated with the Academy’s reaccreditation, including the Academy’s September 2017 monitoring report, the October 2017 report of the Middle States visiting team, and Middle States’ official notice of reaccreditation will be posted on the Academy’s website by 21 November 2017.
