In late 2017, an MIT Steering Committee charged nine planning groups of Institute officers, faculty, staff, and students to conduct an institutional self-study with a focus on MIT's evolution over the prior decade. The self-study, published in 2019, examined MIT through a number of lenses, from academic programming to student life to resources to educational effectiveness. Soon thereafter, a team of external evaluators visited campus to review the study, meet with members of the MIT community, and formulate a recommendation to the Commission.

In June 2020, the Commission formally extended MIT's accreditation, requesting an interim report in Fall 2024, with the next comprehensive review scheduled for Fall 2029. Confirmation of MIT's accreditation is available here, with all relevant correspondence with the Commission posted here.
