Canisius is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) and this accreditation is essential for Canisius to access U.S. Department of Education Title IV funding (federal financial aid, including PELL grants, GI Bill) and state funding (including TAP, HEOP, Bundy Aid, HECap grants) that afford so many of our students the opportunity to attend Canisius. Last fall, we initiated the reaccreditation process by identifying our team members, attending trainings and developing the self-study design.
The next step of our reaccreditation process is a visit by our Middle States Vice President Liaison, Dr. Anne Wahl. She will hold an open forum for faculty, staff and students on Wednesday, August 30, 2023, from 12:30 – 1:30 pm in the Science Hall Commons, which is the beginning of our critical self-study process. This process will require involvement across all areas of the university, so broad participation will facilitate a comprehensive and inclusive self-study report.
If your schedule permits, we strongly encourage you to make arrangements to join the open forum.
