The Thomas More College of Liberal Arts is recognized and approved of by the New Hampshire
Post-Secondary Education Commission. Through the Commission, the College has the authority
to grant undergraduate degrees in the State of New Hampshire.

The College is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, the Nation’s
oldest accreditation association.

In December of 2009, after a review of the decade-long financial difficulties faced by the College,
NEASC determined that the best way to assist the College in maintaining stability and growing
into a more viable business enterprise was to give the College a two-year probationary status for
improving its financial strength.

In its letter to President Fahey (of December 2, 2009), the Commission on Institutions of Higher
Education of NEASC recognized that as “a young institution, Thomas More College has never
enjoyed assured financial viability,” a situation made more complicated “when the founding
president leaves.” The Commission stated that it “appreciates the steps that the College has taken
under the current leadership to address its financial circumstances.” The administration was also
complemented for its “candid and forthright responses” to its recent reviews. NEASC also
remarked that “the College’s new president has moved vigorously to re-stabilize the institution.”

The Commission has given guidelines for assisting the College in the formulation a new financial
strategy and it believes that “the College has the realistic prospect of meeting the standard on
Financial Resources within two years.” The College is compliant with respect to all of the other ten
standards. “Pleased” with the third-party audit of College finances, NEASC is helping Thomas
More College collect and analyze data “to determine if the College is making appropriate progress
in steps it has identified to enhance its financial condition.”

Thomas More College of Liberal Arts is grateful to receive NEASC’s continued support and its
professional guidance in this time of transition.

In conformity with regulatory requirements, the College is obliged to provide the following statement:

Thomas More College of Liberal Arts is accredited on probation by the Commission on
Institutions of Higher Education, New England Association of Schools and Colleges, effective
December 2009, because the Commission finds that the institution is in danger of losing its
accreditation because it is not in compliance with the Standards for Accreditation. Of concern is
accreditation standard nine on financial resources. A statement providing further information
about the probationary status will be made available upon request by:

The Commission on Institutions of Higher Education
The New England Association of Schools and Colleges
209 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730-1433
