Marlboro College and the Marlboro College Graduate and Professional Studies programs are accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), which accredits schools and colleges in the six New England states. Accreditation by NEASC indicates that Marlboro meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality, periodically applied through a peer review process.
The last re-accreditation process for Marlboro was completed in April 2015, and included a college self-study driven by a steering committee composed of students, faculty, staff, and trustees, offering the entire community many opportunities for input and discussion. The next re-accreditation process will commence in 2024. Inquiries regarding the accreditation status should be directed to the assistant dean of academic records. For more information, individuals may also contact the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education, New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

For questions or complaints regarding state licensing of colleges and programs, go to the Vermont Department of Education. Please note that the Vermont Department of Education does not intervene in the internal procedures of colleges and universities, and encourages you to work directly with Marlboro to resolve any issues.
