College Accreditation


Introduction.

The accreditation repository is brought to you by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE). The database is offered as a public service without warranty of any kind. The repository doesn't constitute an endorsement by the U.S. Department of Education of the educational institutions or programs.

Function of the U.S. Department of Education in postsecondary accreditation.

The U.S. Department of Education fails to accredit educational facilities and/or programs. However, the Department provides oversight during the postsecondary accreditation system through its athleanx workout review all federally-recognized accrediting agencies. The Department holds accrediting agencies accountable by making certain they enforce their accreditation standards effectively. Also, as a part of the Department's oversight roles, the Secretary of Education is needed for legal reasons to create the nationally recognized accrediting agencies that the Secretary determines to remain reliable authorities concerning the caliber of education or training which is available from the institutions of upper education as well as the degree programs they accredit. The Secretary of Education also recognizes State agencies with the approval of public postsecondary vocational education and nurse education.

Twelve common , the Secretary's recognition of accrediting agencies is restricted to statute to accreditation activities for the United States. Although some recognized agencies execute accrediting activities away from the United States, these actions usually are not with the legal authority on the Department of Education to identify , usually are not reviewed by its Department, and also the Department doesn't necessarily exercise any oversight over them. (Consequently, institutions and programs away from the United States that happens to be accredited by recognized agencies aren't most notable database.)

Purpose of the accrediting agency in postsecondary accreditation.

The objective of accreditation is to make certain that education given by institutions and/or programs of upper education meets acceptable numbers of quality. Accrediting agencies, which are private educational associations of regional or national scope, develop evaluation criteria and conduct peer evaluations to assess if or not those criteria are met. Institutions and/or programs that request an agency's evaluation and the meet an agency's criteria are then accredited by that agency.
