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 External Link Image Icon for 25 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.
