Why is Accreditation Important?

In short, accreditation encourages that higher education programs and institutions are committed to quality and are continuously improving performance.

Accreditation also ensures that programs taught at higher education institutions are credible and of high quality and that they provide an unbiased review of the department's offering so that students can trust that they acquire what they are promised from an institution.

When making choices about which program to pursue, students weigh several factors, such as faculty expertise, location, expense, financial aid support, and entry requirements. On the top of this list, program accreditation should also be considered.
