What Accreditation Means to You
When you attend an accredited college or university, you can expect:
- A Quality Education: Accreditation means that a college, university, institution or program meets standards of quality for faculty, curriculum, administration, library, financial management and student services.
- Financial Aid Opportunities: You can only obtain federal financial assistance if your college or university has appropriate accreditation from an organization recognized by the United States Department of Education.
- Credits that Transfer: If you ever want to transfer your college credits to continue your education, accreditation is an important factor when a college or university is deciding whether to accept transfer credits from your previous school.
What are the Higher Learning Commission and the North Central Association?
The North Central Association was founded in 1895 as a
membership organization for educational institutions. It is committed to developing and maintaining
high standards of excellence, and is one of
six regional institutional accrediting associations in the United States. Through its Higher Learning Commission, it accredits
and thereby grants membership to colleges and universities in the 19-state North Central region.
