New York Institutions

Institutional Accreditation by the Board of Regents

The New York State Board of Regents and the Commissioner of Education serve as the nationally recognized accrediting agency for 15 institutions of higher education in New York State. One result of this accreditation is that these institutions are eligible for Title IV funds under the Higher Education Act if they choose to participate in these programs.

Scope of Accreditation

The United States Secretary of Education recognizes the New York State Board of Regents and the Commissioner of Education for the institutional accreditation of those degree-granting institutions of higher education in New York, including distance education offered by those institutions, that designate the agency as their sole or primary nationally recognized accrediting agency for purposes of establishing eligibility to participate in HEA programs.
