Why Does Accreditation Matter?
What is accreditation? How does accreditation help students and parents make informed decisions?
"Ask Before You Decide: Accreditation Matters" [PDF] is a new brochure developed by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) in collaboration with several accrediting agencies, which offers clear answers to these important questions and will help students, parents, and the public understand the value of accreditation and the importance of knowing the accreditation status before making any decisions on whether to attend an institution or a program.
"The Value of Accreditation," now on YouTube, describes the value of accreditation from the perspective of students, institutional administrators, and accreditors and was produced by the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors (ASPA).
