Accreditation: An Emblem of Credibility

Accreditation is awarded to an institute of higher learning by an independent, external group of auditors who confirm that the college or university in question keeps the promises it makes to students. Accrediting organizations, which are private educational associations of regional or national scope, develop evaluation criteria and conduct peer evaluations to assess whether or not that criteria is met. Institutions and/or programs that request an agency's evaluation and that meet an agency's criteria are then "accredited" by that agency. The main benefits of institutional accreditation include:

  • The Federal Government limits federal financial aid to student’s enrolled institutions that are accredited by one of the nationally recognized accreditors.
  • Many graduate and professional schools only admit students who graduated from an accredited institution.
  • Several higher education institutions only accept transfer credits from accredited institutions.

Institutional Accreditation

The education curriculum of our partner universities is recognized throughout academia as a prestigious higher education organization. Our dedicated Office of Academic Affairs is in charge for coordinating efforts to prepare for the accrediting agency's periodic site visits and reviews.

Maintaining Accreditation

To ensure sustainable academic excellence, accreditation requires periodic institutional and program reviews. The accreditation process also provides an opportunity to assess our partner universities’.

The accreditation process also provides an opportunity to our partner universities to assess their own successes and challenges over time and make better decisions when allocating resources.
