Accreditation

What is Accreditation?

The mark of a solid foundation, accreditation is a status granted to an institution that meets specific criteria of educational quality as deteremined by an accrediting agency.  Accreditation can be an important factor—both for students selecting a school, and for employers deciding which graduates to hire as a it provides a benchmark for educational quality.

The accreditation process engages peers within the higher educational community to review and assess  the educational quality of an institution, to assure consistency in institutional operations, to promote institutional improvement and to provide for public accountability and transparency.

Accreditation is a deliberate, thorough and voluntary process. Accrediting agencies assess compliance with their published academic and administrative standards and look for a continuous commitment in striving for excellence by the institutions they accredit.

For students, parents, and employers, accreditation serves as an indicator that an institution is committed to delivering a quality education by providing an external and objective endorsement of instructional quality.
