We have maintained accreditation by achieving high standards across a wide range of criteria, including:

  • Strong graduation rates
  • Excellent academic quality
  • A clearly defined educational mission
  • Comprehensive student support programs
  • Modern technology and infrastructure
  • Sustainable financial planning

2015 Self-Study Report

During our comprehensive evaluation in 2009, the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools challenged Wentworth to merge our rich history and tradition with the needs and expectations of twenty-first-century college students.

We responded to the accrediting body’s challenge with the same energy and rigor that we expect of our students. The Board of Trustees developed and approved a revised mission statement and a new comprehensive Strategic Plan.

In addition, Wentworth conducted a mutli-year process of self-study and evaluation. The self-study resulted in a wide range of new policies and reforms, which are detailed in the 2015 Self-Study Report.
