Academic Integrity and Improvement

By recognizing the quality of postsecondary institutions and their programs, accreditation builds confidence in the higher-education community and the constituencies of each school. A college’s accreditation helps other colleges, students, their parents, and their potential employers assess the quality of the college and its programs. In order for a student to receive federal financial aid, the college must be accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
