2020-2021 Hill Book (Class of 2024)
The Hill Book serves as the online, accredited version of the Stonehill College Academic Catalog which contains useful information about the College’s academic programs and partnerships, degree requirements, course offerings, admission and financial information, and College academic policies and resources.
The 2020-2021 Hill Book is considered the source for academic and programmatic requirements for students entering the College during the Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 semesters.
It is published for information purposes only and does not constitute a contract between the College and any student, or other person, or application for admission. While the information contained in the Hill Book is meant to provide an explanation of College policies, the college maintains and publishes electronically a separate Policy Manual and the information contained in the Policy Manual super cedes any information contained in the Hill Book. The policies and information that appear in The Hill Book do not constitute the official policies of the College. The College reserves the right at its discretion to make changes, additions or deletions to any matters covered in The Hill Book. Whenever it does so the College will endeavor to give advance notice, but it reserves the right to make a change effective immediately.

Degrees and Accreditation
Stonehill College offers a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degrees, as well as a Master of Arts in Integrated Marketing Communications, and a Master of Education in Special Education.
Stonehill College is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.).
Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Commission indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied though a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes 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 the Commission 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 the Commission should be directed to the Stonehill College, Attn: Clerk of the Corporation, 320 Washington Street, Easton, MA 02357. Individuals may also contact:
