Overview of ACCSC
As an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, ACCSC has continually demonstrated that it is a valid and reliable authority on the assesment of education quality.
Recognition by the U.S. Department of Education
At its June 2011 meeting, the National Advisory Committee for Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI),which is charged with advising the U.S. Secretary of Education on accreditation matters, voted to recommend that ACCSC’s recognition as a reliable authority on quality education be continued for five years, the maximum timeframe allowed under the federal guidelines. ACCSC was one of only two accrediting agencies on NACIQI’s June 2011 agenda to earn the committee’s recommendation for a full five-year term with no additional reporting required.
ACCSC’s scope of recognition with the U.S Department of Education includes the accreditation of postsecondary, non-degree-granting institutions, including those granting associate, baccalaureate and master’s degrees, that are predominantly organized to educate students for occupational, trade and technical careers, and including institutions that offer programs via distance education.
