WASHINGTON, July 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security is pleased to announce it has been accepted as a candidate for accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE).
As of June 23, 2017, Daniel Morgan Graduate School (DMGS) has been invited to initiate the self-study process through MSCHE. The program will strengthen and sustain the quality and integrity of DMGS' higher education program as DMGS demonstrates compliance with MSCHE's standards and requirements and engages in the ongoing processes of self-review and improvement.
"We at DMGS have known all along the kind of quality education and programs we offer to students serving or seeking careers in the intelligence and national security communities, but we are thrilled to be recognized by MSCHE," said Alan Kelly, Vice President at Daniel Morgan Graduate School. "We look forward to working with an organization that values the same commitment to education."
MSCHE, a non-governmental association that services higher education institutes in the mid-Atlantic, has eligibility requirements that each institution must meet to receive a candidacy for accreditation. Such requirements mandate that the institution award postsecondary degrees, as opposed to certificates or licenses and that the institution complies with all applicable government policies, regulations, and requirements. Their accreditation process ensures institutional accountability, self-appraisal, improvement, and innovation through peer review and rigorous application of standards.
This invitation is especially valuable as federal law allows students to receive tuition loans with a school that is under a self-study program, making DMGS more accessible for students than ever.
"We are especially excited that we can now reach more students under the federal loan program," said Kelly. "We are confident this self-study program and eventual accreditation will only improve our offerings to students."
DMGS looks forward to continuously offering structured degree programs that address the professional needs of its students while working towards full accreditation with MSCHE.
