Accreditation helps many people make important decisions about education including: 

  • Students choosing an educational program
  • Parents seeking assurance of a quality education
  • Institutions seeking to improve the education provided by their programs
  • Employers recruiting well-prepared graduates
  • State registration, licensure and certification boards screening applicants for entry into professional practice
  • Industry seeking to voice educational needs to institutions
