Accreditation Information

The U.S. Department of Education maintains a database of accrediting agencies it recognizes, and it can be found using the link above. Accreditation is the recognition from an accrediting agency that an institution maintains a certain level of educational standards.

The Board cannot make any recommendations on accrediting agencies. Accreditation ensures a certain level of academic quality. Accreditation means a school demonstrates positive student outcomes, like retention, graduation, and employment. Schools approved by the Board are not required to be accredited, but that is something to recognize when researching schools.
