Southern Maine Community College Receives Reaccreditation for Next Decade

Southern Maine Community College (SMCC), an NEC member, has received reaccreditation from the New England Commission of Higher Education for the next 10 years. Following an in-depth three-day visit from the accreditation team, SMCC was found to meet the rigorous standards in areas like administration, academic programs, faculty, students, and facilities.

The New England Commission of Higher Education—also a Council member—enforces high standards for academic institutions in New England. To illustrate its compliance, SMCC produced a 228-page self-study for the accreditors. The accreditation team spent three days on campus, discussing the school with faculty, staff, students, administrators, and trustees. This team commended SMCC for its integrity, transparency, professionalism, collaboration, focus, and data-informed progress.

Joe Cassidy, President of SMCC, said, “Everybody at SMCC should be proud of our reaccreditation. We came through the process with flying colors. The reaccreditation assures the public that we are a high-quality institution delivering a high-quality education.”

The New England Council congratulates SMCC for this achievement, and for continuing to demonstrate a high academic standard in its mission to transform lives and communities through education.
