The Mission of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges’ Committee on Technical and Career Institutions is to accredit member institutions, thus, assuring the public of the quality of a particular institution and entering into a partnership with it for its self-improvement.

Accreditation is achieved by applying the Committee’s Standards of Membership through a deliberate process of voluntary self-regulation and peer review, including institutional self-study and evaluation, accompanied by Committee examination and analysis leading to accreditation at the institutional level.

The Committee’s evaluation and accreditation activities are directed to secondary and postsecondary institutions whose mission is career and technical in nature. Nationally, the Committee limits its scope to institutions in the New England states; the Committee sets no international limits. At the postsecondary level, non-degree granting institutions are included in the Committee’s scope.
