Decennial Reaccreditation and Self-study
The Johns Hopkins University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). The Commission maintains a 10-year cycle of review, beginning with a self-study and on-site evaluation visit, and followed by a Periodic Review Report five years later. Johns Hopkins is currently undetaking a university-wdie self-study as part of its 2012~2014 decennial reaccreditation. This decennial evaluation consists of an extensive institutional self-study process that produces a written self-study report. The report and MSCHE’s accreditation standards will serve as the basis for on-site evaluation by a team of peer evaluators in 2014. Learn more about the self-study
