The purpose of this Policy on Academic Programs with Additional Accreditation is to ensure academic programs at Hudson County Community College (“College”) that hold accreditation by a discipline-specific accrediting agency, in addition to the College’s institutional accreditation conferred through the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (“MSCHE”), provide educational experiences in accordance with the standards established by the discipline-specific accrediting agencies.
The College and its Board of Trustees are committed to providing high-quality educational
experiences and programs.
The College and its Board of Trustees (“Board”) believe that disciplinary accreditation for academic programs, where appropriate, in addition to the College’s institutional accreditation through MSCHE, are indicators of academic rigor, integrity, and quality. The Office of Academic Affairs ensures the College’s adherence to the standards of these additional accrediting agencies in furtherance of providing high-quality and rigorous academic programs.
The Board delegates to the President the responsibility to develop procedures and guidelines for the implementation of this policy. The Office of Academic Affairs shall be responsible for implementing the procedures and guidelines developed for this policy.
