Accreditation

Pine Manor College is fully accredited to grant Bachelor of Arts, Associate of Arts, Associate of Science and Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing degrees by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education, New England Association of Schools and College (NEASC).

In a letter to PMC’s Interim President the Commission explained that it was placing Pine Manor College on probation because while the College does not now meet the Commission’s standards, the Commission believes that the institution can meet the standards within two years.

Pine Manor College is accredited on probation by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education, New England Association of Schools and Colleges, effective May 13th, 2016, because the commission finds that the institution is in danger of losing its accreditation because it is not in compliance with the Standards of Accreditation. Of concern are accreditation standards on Mission and Purposes, Planning and Evaluation, Organization and Governance, Students, and Financial Resources. A statement providing further information about the probationary status is available on the website of the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (http://cihe.neasc.org).

Pine Manor College is grateful to receive NEASC’s continued support and its professional guidance during this time of transition.
