What is Accreditation?

For a university, accreditation is a hallmark of excellence in education. Accrediting organizations exist to identify standards in higher learning and grant official recognition to universities that meet or exceed those standards. To earn approval, universities must meet strict criteria pertaining to curriculum and faculty.  A college can earn multiple programmatic accreditations for a variety of eligible programs.  University accreditation is not a detail to overlook when choosing a school. It is a testament to the quality you deserve in an education.
