Accreditation and recognition
Public statement about program of special monitoring:
On 14th June 2016, the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education approved the sale of Glion Institute of Higher Education to Eurazeo. In approving the change of ownership, the Commission applied its Program of Special Monitoring to the College. The Program of Special Monitoring is routinely implemented by the Commission in cases of change of ownership and enables the Commission to monitor the institution’s ongoing compliance with the Standards for Accreditation. Further information about the Program of Special Monitoring is available on the Commission’s website (https://cihe.neasc.org) or upon request from:
New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE)
Glion Institute of Higher Education is accredited at university level by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). This means Glion is allowed to deliver its own undergraduate and graduate awards.
Accreditation by NECHE is not partial, it applies to the institution as a whole. As such, this recognition is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. However, accreditation provides reasonable assurance about the quality of services and opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by the Commission should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:
