MCU was commended for its self-study and granted re-accreditation with MSCHE for 10 years on June 24, 2016. This is the maximum re-accreditation term granted among U.S. accrediting entities. MCU remains the first and only U.S.-Accredited University in Asia.

Dr. John C. Cavanaugh, the Team Chair appointed by MSCHE, led a delegation of 7 members to visit Taipei and Taoyuan campuses on April 9 to 14, 2016, and gave concrete suggestions and feedback to MCU’s Self-Study Steering Committee members at the end of the visit. He then submitted the team’s evaluation visit report to MSCHE review committee. On June 24, 2016, MSCHE sent formal notification to MCU of being granted MSCHE Accreditation for 10 years and commended the high quality of our self-study. The next visit is tentatively scheduled for 2025.
