Accreditation

Regis College is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) a voluntary, nongovernmental, peer-based membership association dedicated to promoting standards of excellence and improvement in higher education.

Programmatic Accreditation

The elementary, moderate special needs, and secondary education programs have been approved for interstate certification and meet the standards of the interstate certification compact/national association of state directors of teacher education and certification.

The social work program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

The Regis College master in social work program (MSW) is currently in Candidacy status with the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). As with all new MSW programs, the Regis College MSW program must complete a three-year candidacy period prior to receiving initial CSWE accreditation. A program that has attained CSWE Candidacy has demonstrated a commitment to meeting the compliance standards set by the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards.

  • While attaining CSWE Candidacy does not guarantee a program will eventually attain Initial Accreditation, it is expected that the Regis College MSW program accreditation will proceed successfully based on the commitment and expertise of the faculty, strong program leadership, and solid support of the university administration. The program seeks to receive Initial Accreditation in Spring 2021.
