Accreditation defined . . .
  • Accreditation is the process of voluntary,
    external peer review in which a nongovernmental
    agency grants public recognition to an
    institution or specialized program of study that
    meets established qualifications and complies
    with educational standards, as determined through
    initial and subsequent periodic evaluations.

Accreditation
  • Recognizes programs level of performance,
    integrity and quality in regard to academics,
    administration, and services

    and sustain quality and integrity
