To certify that an institution has met the established standards of excellence, assist prospective students in identifying reputable institutions, which offer degree programs that will meet their needs and goals. Also allow institutions to evaluate the acceptability of transfer credits into their own curricular programs.Importance of Accreditation
Accreditation is a private, voluntary, non-governmental peer-review process that reviews the educational quality of an institution or program. In the United States, accreditation is the primary means of assuring educational quality. Accreditation status confirms that an institution has voluntarily undergone a comprehensive self-study and peer examination that demonstrates the institution meets standards of accreditation. To receive accreditation, the institution must clearly demonstrate that it has established educational goals, offers formal organized learning experiences and services that enable students to meet these stated goals, and that students and graduates benefit from the learning experiences provided. Furthermore, accreditation assures that an institution operates on a sound financial basis, has approved programs of study, qualified instructors, adequate facilities and equipment, engages in continual improvement through self-evaluation and plans and promotes its programs truthfully.
A degree is only valid if it is properly granted by an entity that has the legal authority to do so and degree-granting authorization cannot be conferred by an accrediting body. Accreditation agencies are themselves private membership associations and relied upon by many governmental entities to perform certain qualitative and evaluative functions. However, they do not themselves have the authority to issue degrees.
