• Accreditation

    Accreditation is both a status and a process.

    As a status, accreditation provides public notification that a college meets standards of quality set forth by an independent accrediting agency. These standards verify that a college has the curriculum, support programs and services, financial and human resources, facilities and other requirements to provide a quality educational experience for its students.

    As a process, accreditation reflects the fact that in achieving recognition by the accrediting agency, the college has prepared a self-study for external review by its peers that addresses each accreditation standard and participates in a site visit that verifies all information documented in the self-study. Accreditation is an important recognition that is required for transferability of credit to other educational institutions, meet professional licensing requirements, gain employment and permit access to other opportunities.
