What Accreditation Means to You

When you attend an accredited college or university, you can expect:

  • A Quality Education:Accreditation means that the institution meets standards of quality for faculty, curriculum, administration, library, financial management and student services.
  • Financial Aid Opportunities:You can only obtain federal financial assistance if the institution has appropriate accreditation from an organization recognized by the United States Department of Education.
  • Credits that Transfer:If you ever want to transfer your college credits to continue your education, accreditation is an important factor when a college or university is deciding whether to accept transfer credits from your previous school.
