What does accreditation mean to you?

Accreditation is an independent appraisal of an institution during which the school is evaluated on a number of areas including educational quality, professional status among similar institutions, financial stability, and operational ethics. It is a voluntary step our College chose to pursue many years ago to verify to students, alumni, and the community at large that our students are being trained appropriately in their chosen career field.

What is the process of accreditation?

The process of obtaining NACCAS accreditation involves a rigorous progression starting with application procedures; self-study reviews; site visits from accreditation members; detailed evaluation of our course offerings, program curriculum, campus; and assessments on our teaching faculty. Schools are granted accreditation for a certain number of years, and when the time frame comes to a close, the process must be repeated. In summary, accreditation confirms you are obtaining a quality education that will thoroughly prepare you for the workforce.

* If you would like to see the NACCAS approval letter, please see Mrs. Mills.

* The approval letter from accreditation and licensing is available on the laboratory walls.
