Accreditation of U.S. colleges and universities is a both a process and a status. It is the process of reviewing educational institutions to judge their quality — how well they serve students and society. The result of the rigorous process, if successful, is the award of “accredited status.” Holy Cross is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), and its accreditation is reviewed every 10 years. Holy Cross’ accreditation was last renewed in the fall of 2010.
In March 2010, a peer review team spent three days on campus and submitted a full report with recommendations to NEASC. Via the links on this site you can read the final report from the visiting team, learn about our self-study process, and view the NEASC standards.
