Southeast Missouri State University derives its regional accreditation status from
the North Central Association’s Commission on Institutions of Higher Education. Continuing
accreditation requires each NCA institution to complete a comprehensive self study
and to submit to peer review on a schedule determined by the Association.
Southeast completed a self study in 2000 and was granted re-accreditation with the next visit scheduled in 10 years (the maximum allowed). In 2006, Southeast moved into the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) and has its next site visit in September of 2012 and Reaffirmation of Accreditation by the end of 2012.
