Is Charter Oak an Accredited College? Yes.

This is a question we at Charter Oak are used to hearing. Given the many flexible ways we enable you to complete your degree, it may seem that we are too good to be true.

We do in fact offer the best of both worlds - the flexibility and convenience of distance education, coupled with the academic credentials and personal support that are more typical of a traditional college.

Charter Oak's Accreditation

Charter Oak State College is licensed and accredited by the state of Connecticut and regionally accredited by The New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

  • NEASC logo
    The New England Association of Schools and Colleges
    NEASC is the accrediting board for colleges and universities located in the New England area.  Accreditation of an institution of higher education by NEASC indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purpose through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation. Accreditation by NEASC is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution. Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by NEASC should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution.
