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. The PRR Steering Committee and Subcommittee members have been working together since then to prepare the drafts of the report. Please see above Timetable tab for a list of our meetings to date. And see the above Draft Periodic Review Report tab for our most recent version of the draft. We invite you to provide feedback on the draft. For further information, please contact Kristi Eck, Chief of Staff, at kristi.eck@oswego.edu. Thank you.
