Accreditation

Accreditation is a process in which certification of competency, authority, or credibility is presented. Accreditation also ensures that the institutions of higher education meet acceptable levels of educational quality. With MECOHE as an accrediting body, it is ensured that the institutions being awarded accreditation have met our stringent set of evaluation criteria as measured through our patented evaluation procedure. The highlights of our accreditation are listed below:

Resources for Educational Institutions

The steps to our accreditation process are described below. If you are a representative of an educational institution and interested in learning more about MECOHE accreditation please read the following accreditation steps.

To begin with the accreditation process, you will need to provide the applicant institution details via email. The email is needed to be sent at the address mentioned on the website. Your application must include the details about the basic structure, functions and other key factors, allowing us to evaluate your institution’s eligibility for the accreditation. Applicants are advised to provide true information which will later be verified by our representative. In case, the applicant institution provides MECOHE with any false information, the application will not only be rejected but also the institution put in the ban list of MECOHE and will lose its chances of getting accreditation from MECOHE for any program in future. The detailed application enables MECOHE to analyze an educational institute as per our patented accreditation process. This is a meticulous assessment against the standards and performance metrics required for granting accreditation to an institute.

You submit an affidavit on your institution’s letterhead duly signed by a notary public, stating all information submitted on your online application form is correct. On the basis of all the submitted documentary evidence through the detailed letter, your institution will be evaluated for candidacy as an accredited institute based on our unique patented profiling system. The MECOHE will award institutions with an accreditation Candidacy and provide the unique points profile keeping in view the best global practices. Approval of the candidacy usually takes about two weeks.

The MECOHE representative will visit your facility or office on mutually agreed date. The MECOHE will evaluate your educational system for full accreditation through your location and/or online education provision system, through student involvement and through MECOHE's proprietary variable.

Full accreditation will be awarded and your final points profile will be granted to you based on our evaluator(s’) visit and assessment of your (i) location and / or (ii) online or distance learning platform and system if you are solely an online/distance learning establishment. This means (i) a detailed audit of your online education provision system in terms of both the front end ease-of-use of the user interfaces and the back–end security and technology systems of your educational set-up to confirm that your institute conforms to our standards and requirements (ii) gauging student feedback and (iii) reviewing your processes and systems against MECOHE’s proprietary assessment.

We will further provide you a report with recommended changes to improve your program so it fits closer to the global education standards for working adults, boosting your point profile.
