College re-accreditation occurs every 10 years. SUNY Oswego was most recently re-accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) in 2012. The college is currently working on the Periodic Review Report due in 2017.

In late Fall 2015, President Deborah F. Stanley launched the Periodic Review Report (PRR) planning process by convening the Steering Committee and the four subcommittees. The PRR Steering Committee and Subcommittee members have been working together since then to prepare the first draft of the report. The first draft will be shared with the campus community at the start of the Fall 2016 semester for review and comment. Please see below for a list of our meetings to date and our accomplished and upcoming tasks. For further information, please contact Kristi Eck, Chief of Staff, at Thank you.
