WMCC is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE).

Accreditation of an institution of higher education by NECHE indicates that the institution meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a process of peer review. An accredited college or university is one that, through appropriate educational programs, has the necessary resources available to achieve its stated purposes; one that is substantially achieving these purposes; and one that gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. The accreditation process likewise addresses institutional integrity.

Accreditation by NECHE applies to the institution as a whole. It does not guarantee the quality of every course or program offered nor does it guarantee the competence of every graduate. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance of the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.

Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by NECHE should be directed to WMCC’s administrative staff. Individuals may also contact New England Commission of Higher Education, 3 Burlington Woods Drive, Suite 100, Burlington, MA 01803-4514, (781) 425-7785,
