Why is accreditation important?
Accreditation is important to both students and employers for the same basic reason. Accredited institutions of higher education must comply with and maintain standards of excellence. For the student, this assures the quality of education based on the qualifications of the faculty and the depth of the curriculum. Employers hiring graduates from accredited institutions have the assurance that the graduate received instruction in accordance with national guidelines for standardization and quality.
