ACCREDITATION

AUC holds institutional accreditation from the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools in the United States (MSCHE).

Institutional accreditation status is granted by Middle States for a period of ten years, with a mid-way periodic review. AUC's most recent reaccreditation was granted by the commission of MSCHE on June 26, 2008. The accreditation status was reaffirmed subsequent to AUC's institutional self-study, a visit by a team of peers from Middle States and consideration by the board of MSCHE.

In Egypt, AUC operates within the framework of the 1975 protocol with the Egyptian government, which in turn is based on the 1962 Cultural Relations Agreement between the Egyptian and the U.S. governments.

In the United States, AUC is licensed to grant degrees and is incorporated by the state of Delaware.
