Accrediting Organizations

Accreditation is the evaluation of higher education organizations and programs for quality, which provides students and government officials with the proof that a program will present a valuable education. Non-governmental and private associations in the United States are created specifically to evaluate higher education organizations for quality and value.

The purpose of accreditation is to guarantee that schools, colleges and universities meet adequate levels of quality. Private educational institutes or accrediting agencies develop assessment conditions and perform evaluations which are used to calculate whether the criteria have been met. Once an educational establishment has been evaluated and met the criteria set by an agency, they are then considered accredited.

It is important to confirm an educational programs accreditation prior to enrollment in order to ensure the best possible education for your time and money. Attending an accredited institution will provide you with proof of a quality education that will be highly regarded by future employers.

All programs and educational facilities listed on are to the best of our knowledge accredited by the CHEA, USDE, or other accrediting agency. For questions regarding the accreditation status of the educational program you are interested in attending please refer to one of the organizations below.

The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA)
