Stony Brook University has been accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education since 1957. The Commission most recently re-affirmed our accreditation status on June 26, 2014. Our next review will be in 2023-24.
Accreditation is a means of self-regulation and peer review adopted by the educational community. The accrediting process is intended to strengthen and sustain the quality and integrity of higher education, making it worthy of public confidence.
