Accreditation

Accreditation

Accreditation is a rigorous process conducted by a body which governs an activity. An example would be the American Medical Association and doctors, certifying that the graduates of that program meet the standards set forth by the governing body. It is a way to hold institutions accountable for the quality of their programs. Accreditation provides other colleges and universities to whom our graduates apply the assurance that our programs are duly structured and are taught by properly credentialed faculty.
