After obtaining both pre-accreditation and provisional accreditation from the Bureau of Professional Education of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), TUCOM was authorized to open its doors to students during the 1997-1998 academic year. The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) acted to include TUCOM within the scope of Touro College’s accreditation in November, 1997.
