Wednesday, March 12 Accreditation Update

Do you know what accreditation is?  

 

Accreditation is a voluntary process of self-regulation and peer review adopted by the educational community more than 100 years ago. Institutions of higher education have voluntarily entered into associations to evaluate each other in accord with an institution’s stated goals. 

 

Institutional accreditation: Most accreditation is institutional, meaning an entire college is accredited. This gives credibility to the college as a whole. This type of accreditation can be given by either a “regional accreditation agency” or a “national accreditation agency.” The U.S. is divided into six regions - each with a regional accrediting body. The one for Maryland is the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

 

Specialized and programmatic accreditation: Certain specialized professional programs are accredited independently of their parent institution. There are specialized accrediting bodies for these programs—such as the International Association for Management Education and the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.
