University of New Haven Accreditation

Accreditation & Authorizations

The University of New Haven is a co-educational, non-sectarian, independent institution of higher learning, chartered by the General Assembly of the State of Connecticut.

The university is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Accreditation of higher education institutions by the NEASC indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality — a process applied periodically through a peer-review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available, and often substantially provides, the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs. Accreditation is also based on whether or not the university shows reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.

Inquiries regarding accreditation status by the NEASC should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:
