Our accreditation signifies all of our programs meet standards of quality set forth by the accrediting body. It also involves an in-depth self-review of our programs against currently accepted best practice standards, an onsite visit by an evaluation team comprised of experts, and a subsequent review and decision by the accrediting body.
