The University of New Haven is a coeducational, nonsectarian, independent institution
of higher learning, chartered by the General Assembly of the State of Connecticut.
The University is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges
(NEASC). Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the New England Association
indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality
periodically applied through 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 New England Association 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 the students who attend the institution.
Inquiries regarding accreditation status by the New England Association should be
directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:
