Middle States Accreditation
Since 1921, The Pennsylvania State University has been accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (Middle States), a regional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Middle States requires that member institutions meet rigorous and comprehensive standards, which are addressed in the context of the institution’s mission and within the culture of ethical practices and institutional integrity expected of accredited institutions.
