Institutional Accreditation

NHTI is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), which indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied though a peer review process.

An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.

Accreditation by the commission is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.

Inquiries regarding the status of NHTI’s accreditation by the NECHE should be directed to NHTI’s Office of Academic Affairs Office at 603-230-4020. A hard copy of the most recent Accreditation Self-Study Report may be viewed at the NHTI Library or by contacting the Office of Academic Affairs.
