Important Information About Accreditation

All Medical Schools in the United States are accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). Seton Hall University received preliminary accreditation for the School of Medicine from the LCME in February 2018. All new medical schools open with preliminary accreditation and then within a two year period transition to provisional accreditation and then by the fourth year obtain full accreditation if all the standards set by the LCME have been met.

It is important that students applying to and enrolling in the School of Medicine are aware of this status. In addition, please also be advised that Hackensack Meridian Health is currently pursuing LCME accreditation for the School of Medicine. Once this is achieved, control of the School of Medicine will fall entirely under Hackensack Meridian Health, in this case 25% of the seats in the School of Medicine are still guaranteed for qualified Seton Hall students and Seton Hall will still offer its joint MD program as currently defined.
