Worcester Polytechnic Institute is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. 

Accreditation of an institution of higher education by Commission indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.  

Accreditation by the Commission is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course of program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution,

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