Gettysburg College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The re-accreditation process is centered on an institutional self-study leading up to a campus visit by Middle States external evaluators. The College’s last decennial self-study evaluation was in 2013-2014, which was concluded with an external evaluation team visit during the spring of 2014. Based on the institutional self-study and the external evaluation team report, the Commission (MSCHE) reaffirmed accreditation of Gettysburg College, and commends the College for the quality of the self-study process and report.
