Why Accreditation Is Important

Accreditation is important when choosing a college.  When considering any type of educational program, always ask whether the institution offering services is accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the Department of Education.  When you attend an accredited institution, you are attending a school that has undergone a rigorous process that evaluates educational quality. It is not easy to become or remain an accredited institution. The rules and regulations are strict, precise, and designed to protect students. The following are some of the benefits:

  • A reliable indicator of quality
  • Approved program of study
  • Qualified instructors
  • Recognition by employers nationwide
