Welcome to Essex County College’s reaccreditation site. ECC remains accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Our students’ course credits will continue to be transferrable to other colleges or universities, and we can continue to offer financial aid and receive federal grants.


Accreditation Status

Essex County College is a member of the Middle States Association for accreditation; a peer review process is conducted every 10 years to ensure full compliance with all accreditation standards. During the recent Middle States peer review visit in January 2013, the college successfully met all of the 14 standards. Essex County College received numerous commendations from the Commission’s site team visits on the amount of work completed to meet the Middle States standards. On March 7, 2013, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) voted to reaffirm accreditation for Essex County College.


The Commission is requesting the College submit a progress report by October 1, 2014 and a periodic review by June 1, 2018.
