What is accreditation and why is it important to me?

An accredited school is one that meets the standards of excellence, which demonstrates financial stability, hires a competent faculty and has an array of services that respond to the learner’s needs.  Accreditation is a voluntary process that identifies and acknowledges educational programs and/or institutions for achieving and maintaining a level of quality, performance and integrity that meet meaningful standards. Full licenses and certifications are available upon request.
