Accreditation Higher education accreditation is a type of quality assurance process under which services and operations of postsecondary educational institutions or programs are evaluated by an external body to determine if applicable standards are met. Every college lists an accrediting body or bodies. Schools or programs can be accredited within a college.
What to look for? The accrediting body needs to meet the needs of the industry. (Example ASE) How does a certificate/program match up to others in the industry? There are six regional accrediting agencies involved in higher education accreditation in the United States. Regionally accredited higher education institutions are predominantly academically oriented, non-profit institutions. Nationally accredited schools are predominantly for -profit and offer vocational, career or technical programs.
State Community Colleges which are all North Central Association Accredited • Arapahoe Community College • Colorado Northwestern Community College • Community College of Aurora • Community College of Denver • Front Range Community College • Lamar Community College • Morgan Community College • Northeastern Junior College • Otero Junior College • Pikes Peak Community College • Pueblo Community College • Red Rocks Community College • Trinidad State Junior College
Key Point Main issue with accreditation has to do with transferability. If a school is not accredited by one of the 6 Regional Associations, a student will most likely lose most if not all credits if they decide to transfer to another institution.
