Seal of approval

Accreditation is essentially a seal of approval given by the experts. It shows that a school has passed tests of quality and credibility, and that what the school tells you about its services and offerings is true.

Examined and judged

To become accredited, a school’s instructors, courses, services, and fees have to be examined and judged by a panel of experts. These experts protect students by doing the hard work of investigation and evaluation, so you don’t have to.

Help you to get a job

Attending an accredited school or program can can also help you to get a job once you finish school. Employers want to see that you’ve graduated from an accredited program, and some won’t even hire graduates from an unaccredited school. Completing courses from an unaccredited school can mean having to redo coursework or program degree requirements in order to qualify for a job in your chosen field.
