What are accrediting agencies?

Accrediting agencies are organizations (or bodies) that establish operating standards for educational or professional institutions and programs, determine the extent to which the standards are met and publicly announce their findings.

Are there different types of accreditation?

There are two basic types of educational accreditation, one identified as institutional and one referred to as specialized or programmatic. Institutional accreditation normally applies to an entire institution, indicating that each of an institution's parts is contributing to the achievement of the institution's objectives, although not necessarily all at the same level of quality. Specialized or programmatic accreditation normally applies to the evaluation of programs, departments or schools that usually are parts of a total collegiate or other post-secondary institution.
