The University of Cincinnati and all regional campuses are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
What is accreditation?
Accreditation is the recognition that an institution maintains standards requisite for its graduates to gain admission to other reputable institutions of higher learning or to achieve credentials for professional practice. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality. Only institutions accredited by the U.S. Secretary of Education recognized accreditors are allowed to participate in the federal student aid programs under the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008.
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.
