College Accreditation


Introduction.

The accreditation database is produced to you by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE). The database is provided as a public support without guarantee of any kind. The repository does not constitute a certification by the U.S. Department of Education of any of the academic institutions or programs.

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

The U.S. Department of Education is not going to accredit educational institutions and/or programs. However, the Department provides oversight throughout the postsecondary accreditation system through its review of all federally-recognized accrediting agencies. The Department holds accrediting agencies accountable by making sure that they enforce their accreditation standards effectively. Also, as a part of the Department's oversight roles, the Secretary of Education should be applied by law to write a listing of nationally recognized accrediting agencies the Secretary determines to become reliable authorities with regards to the standard of education or training supplied by the institutions of upper education and also college programs they accredit. The Secretary of Education also recognizes State agencies for those approval of public postsecondary vocational education and nurse education.

Needs to be , the Secretary's recognition of accrediting agencies is tied to statute to accreditation activities while in the United States. Although a lot of recognized agencies achieve accrediting activities beyond the United States, these actions are not while in the legal authority of your Department of Education to distinguish , ordinarily are not reviewed with the Department, and the Department will not exercise any oversight over them. (Consequently, institutions and programs outside of the United States which were accredited by recognized agencies usually aren't especially database.)

Institutions and/or programs that request an agency's evaluation understanding that meet an agency's criteria are then accredited by that agency.
