Lakes Region Community College is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) Commission on Institutions of Higher Education, a non-governmental, nationally-recognized organization whose affiliated institutions include elementary schools through collegiate institutions offering post-graduate instruction.
Accreditation means the institution meets or exceeds criteria for quality as determined through a peer group review process. An accredited college is one that has the necessary resources to achieve its stated purpose through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through the accreditation process.
Accreditation provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the college.
Inquiries regarding the status of an institution’s accreditation by the New England Association should be directed to the administrative staff of the college.
