Middle States Reaccreditation: What You Need To Know

Next week from April 3-6, 2022, Brockport is welcoming a virtual site visit by an external Evaluation Team appointed by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education as part of the reaccreditation process.

Colleges and universities must be accredited by a recognized accreditor — in Brockport’s case, Middle States — in order for students to participate in federal financial aid programs and to have the credits and degrees that they earn recognized as valid by others.

The purpose of April’s virtual visit is for the Evaluation Team to clarify and verify the content of Brockport’s Self-Study Report.

The Evaluation Team will meet with many campus groups to clarify and verify the content of the 2022 Self-Study Report so that it make well informed recommendations to the Middle State’s Commission regarding SUNY Brockport’s reaccreditation. If you receive an invitation to a meeting with the visitors, please RSVP as soon as possible.

All members of the SUNY Brockport community, and especially those attending meetings with the visiting team, are strongly encouraged to read the final 2022 Self-Study Report posted on the Brockport Middle States website.

In addition, the reaccreditation leadership team has prepared a series of videos, each 5-7 minutes long, to provide summary overviews of the Self-Study Report as a whole and each of the seven main chapters. Please watch (or just listen) to the videos to become more familiar with the Self-Study.

If you have questions regarding the Middle States Self-Study process, please contact the Self-Study co-chairs, Monica Brasted and/or Amy Guptill, or SUNY Brockport’s Accreditation Liaison Officer, Frances Dearing.
