ACCREDITATION AND RECOGNITION
Public statement about program of special monitoring:
On 14 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 Association of Schools and Colleges
Glion Institute of Higher Education is accredited at university level by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education.
NEASC is one of six regional accrediting bodies recognized by the US Secretary of Education. Glion is accredited at university level which means it is allowed to deliver its own undergraduate and graduate awards.
Accreditation by NEASC 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 New England Association of Schools and Colleges should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:
