Many MIT degree programs are accredited by specialized professional accrediting bodies. As an institution, MIT is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.

Every 10 years, most recently in 2009, MIT undergoes a process of reaccreditation. In Fall 2019, a team of external evaluators will visit campus to review a comprehensive self-study that is currently underway, and to engage members of the MIT community about the Institute’s evolution over the last decade and its plans for the future.

Inquires regarding MIT's accreditation status by the Commission should be directed to accreditation@mit.edu. Individuals may also contact:

MIT is conducting a comprehensive self-study to respond to NECHE’s nine Standards for Accreditation.

MIT’s comprehensive self-study began in December 2017 with a discussion of accreditation at Academic Council.

A Steering Committee of senior Institute leadership oversees and guides MIT’s self-study.
