Accreditation is a process by which U.S. institutions of higher education undergo peer review to assess and certify that the institution meets a threshold of quality, and is eligible to receive federal funds (e.g. through student aid or grants). Swarthmore College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. In order to maintain accreditation, institutions provide routine evaluations in the forms of annual reports, decennial self-studies, and interim (between self-studies) periodic review reports. The latter two involve evaluation by external reviewers.
