In July 2018, Berkeley College received reaffirmation of accreditation from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) in New Jersey and New York, following a 24-month Self-Study process and visits by Evaluation Teams.

Over the course of the Self-Study process, more than 80 conversations took place with students, alumni, faculty, staff, administrators and the Board of Trustees.

Preparation for reaccreditation by the Commission began in 2016 and included an in-depth institutional Self-Study that resulted in two written Self-Study reports: one for Berkeley College in New Jersey and one for Berkeley College in New York. These reports were submitted to MSCHE in September 2017. The reports served as the basis for on-site evaluations by two teams of peer evaluators assigned to each state where Berkeley College operates campuses. 

In the Self-Study, Berkeley College considered its educational programs, policies and services, with particular attention to student learning and achievement. The College also determined how well these programs and services accomplished its goals, fulfilled its mission, and met MSCHE standards. 

The MSCHE will conduct its next review in 2026-2027.
