Institutional Accreditation - NECHE

The University of Massachusetts Lowell is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE, formerly NEASC).
The university’s next comprehensive evaluation will take place in Fall 2023.  At that time, a team of external reviewers will visit UML and meet with faculty, staff, and students from across campus to discuss our campus self-study.
