Central Maine Community College is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc., a non-governmental, nationally-recognized organization, which certifies public and private colleges and universities throughout New England that meet its standards.
An accredited school or college is one that 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 New England Association is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of the quality 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 the institution's accreditation by the New England Association should be directed to the President of the College. Individuals may also contact the Association:
