What is accreditation?

accreditation.gifCAMACS accreditation is the process of reviewing a school's programs and policies to see if it meets criteria. When a school is found to meet the minimum criteria, it is granted accreditation. In addition, accreditation is a process of validation in which your institutions of higher learning are evaluated. The standards for accreditation are set by a peer review board whose members include faculty from various accredited colleges and universities. The board aids in the evaluation of each potential new school accreditation or the renewals of previously accredited colleges/schools. In order for potential colleges to proceed with the accreditation process smoothly, they must meet the general standards set by the peer review accreditation boards. Each college is typically assessed using the following criteria:

Overall Mission of the College

Objectives and Goals

Student Requirements for Admissions

Services Available to Students

Quality of Education

Reputation of Faculty

Why is accreditation important?

When a student receives a diploma from a school accredited by the right agency, he can be assured that it will be accepted by employers. Likewise, when an employer is looking to hire, she can be assured that a graduate from an accredited school has received the training necessary and didn't pay for a degree from a diploma mill school.
