Accreditation is a quality assurance process, whereby a United States Department of Education-recognized third-party (accrediting commission) certifies that your school meets or exceeds specific standards. In addition to enhancing an institution’s academic prestige, accreditation is a prerequisite for government student loan program eligibility, SEVP certification (permission to issue SEVIS Form I-20 to enroll foreign students), and granting recognized certificates and degrees. Further, accreditation increases the likelihood that an institution’s credits will be transferable to other accredited institutions.
The TLA consulting team can help you choose the accreditation agency that is just right for your school, and guide you step-by-step through the accreditation process, from the initial application and preparation of the Self-study (or Self Evaluation Report), through preparing for the site visit and responding to any deficiencies noted by site team members.
We work with all DOE-approved accrediting agencies, including ABHES, ACCET, ACCSC, ACICS, CEA, COE, DEAC, NASAD, NASD, NASM, NAST, WASC, and many others. Contact us today for further information on how we can help you get your academic institution accredited.
