Why Does Accreditation Matter?

For Students
Students benefit from their institution or educational system’s commitment to raising student performance and accountability. Students that attend an accredited institution gain greater access to federal loans, scholarships, post-secondary education, and military programs.
For Parents
This standard of excellence ensures that institutions will find rich benefits from accreditation and that parents can confidently make informed decisions about their children’s education, knowing that their child’s school is accredited.
For Teachers
The accreditation process leads teachers to critically evaluate teaching and learning with a focus for academic excellence.
