Accreditation of Newbury College

The New England Commission of Higher Education

Newbury College is accredited on probation by the New England Commission of Higher Education. 

Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Commission indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.

On August 6, 2018, Newbury College accepted the decision of the Commission to place the College on probation for a period not exceeding two years for not meeting Standard Seven – Institutional Resources – which is one of the nine accreditation standards the College must meet as prescribed by the Commission. A statement providing further information about the probationary status is available on the Commission’s website at

Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by the Commission should be directed to the Office of the President at or by calling 617-730-7035. Individuals may also contact:
