The University of Hartford received a letter of continued accreditation from the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) on May 8, 2012. The re-accreditation came following a comprehensive evaluation of the University in 2011. The next accreditation study is scheduled for 2021.
NEASC is the regional accreditation agency for colleges and universities in the six New England states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. It is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a reliable authority on the quality of education for the institutions it accredits.
