The purpose of accreditation is to guarantee that schools, colleges and universities meet adequate levels of quality. Private educational institutes or accrediting agencies develop assessment conditions and perform evaluations which are used to calculate whether the criteria have been met. Once an educational establishment has been evaluated and met the criteria set by an agency, they are then considered accredited.
It is important to confirm an educational programs accreditation prior to enrollment in order to ensure the best possible education for your time and money. Attending an accredited institution will provide you with proof of a quality education that will be highly regarded by future employers.
All programs and educational facilities listed on EducationPETAP.org are to the best of our knowledge accredited by the CHEA, USDE, or other accrediting agency.
