Towson University is accredited through a voluntary, peer-review process coordinated by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, which manages accreditation for degree-granting schools, colleges and universities in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States.
The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is a voluntary, non-governmental membership association that defines, maintains, and promotes educational excellence across institutions with diverse missions, student populations, and resources. It examines each institution as a whole, rather than specific programs within institutions.
