Accreditation of Post-Secondary, Non-Degree Granting Career and Technical Institutions    

The Middle States Commission on Secondary Schools (MSA-CSS) is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a reliable authority as to the quality of education or training provided by the postsecondary vocational education and nurse education institutions it accredits. Therefore, accredited postsecondary, non-degree granting career and technical institutions may use their Middle States accreditation to establish eligibility to participate in federal Title IV student loan programs for adult students.
 
Career and technical institutions that provide education and training to secondary and/or adult students are eligible to seek candidacy for accreditation and to be accredited by the Commission.

Postsecondary institutions seeking accreditation for Title IV purposes may not offer programs that lead to an associate or higher degree
