Middle States Accreditation - Carnegie Mellon University

Middle States Accreditation

Carnegie Mellon University is accredited through a voluntary, peer-review process coordinated by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE or Middle States).  MSCHE is one of six regional accrediting agencies in the United States, each accrediting institutions of higher education within a specific geographic region.  Middle States is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.  This recognition enables MSCHE's member institutions to establish eligibility to participate in federal financial aid programs (e.g., federal loans, grants, and work-study) administered by the U.S. Department of Education.  Carnegie Mellon University has been accredited by Middle States since 1921.
