Accreditation Overview


RIT is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). MSCHE accredits institutions that “meet rigorous and comprehensive standards, which are addressed in the context of the mission of each institution and within the culture of ethical practices and institutional integrity expected of accredit institutions.” Visit RIT's accreditation page on the MSCHE website.

RIT's Reaccreditation Process

In the fall of 2023, RIT began embarking on a university-wide self-study effort in pursuit of re-accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) in Spring 2026. Our previous re-accreditation was approved in 2017. Accreditation in higher education is a process of peer review for colleges, universities, and educational programs. Visit the RIT Reaccreditation web page.
