What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is a private, voluntary,
A non-governmental peer-review process that reviews the educational quality of an institution or program. Accreditation is the primary means of assuring educational quality. Accreditation status confirms that an institution has voluntarily undergone a comprehensive
self-study and peer examination that demonstrates the institution meets standards of accreditation. To receive accreditation, the institution must clearly demonstrate that it has established educational goals; offers formal, organized learning experiences and services that enable students to meet these stated goals; and that students and graduates have benefited from the learning experiences provided.

Furthermore, accreditation assures that an institution operates on a sound financial basis, has approved programs of study, qualified instructors, adequate facilities and equipment, ethical recruitment, and admission policies, engage in continual improvement through self-evaluation and planning, and promotes its programs truthfully.
