 ​Substantive Change- MSCHE


​In accordance with federal regulations and the Commission’s Substantive Change Policy and Substantive Change Procedures, member institutions must submit a substantive change request to the Commission for approval prior to implementation for certain types of changes.

It is the responsibility of an institution to follow the Commission’s Substantive Change Policy and to obtain approval prior to implementation. Failure to obtain prior approval from the Commission for substantive changes jeopardizes the institution’s accreditation status and may negatively affect the institution’s Title IV funding or eligibility.

The Commission accepts substantive change requests six times a year according to the submission deadlines below:

January 1
March 1
May 1
July 1
September 1
November 1

The MSCHE Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines regarding substantive change are accessible through the link.​
