Abet accreditation


In the United States, post-secondary accreditation is a nongovernmental, peer-reviewed process that ensures or implies adherence to stated educational outcomes and standards. Many professions manage accreditation within their respective disciplines, however, there also accrediting bodies that evaluate at the institutional level. Accreditation is not a ranking system. It is assurance that a program or institution meets established standards.

There are many factors to consider when choosing a college program. One of the most important is whether that program is accredited. Accreditation assures that a program has met certain standards. To employers, graduate schools, and licensure and certification boards, graduation from an accredited program signifies adequate preparation for entry into the profession. In fact, many post-graduation options require graduation from an accredited program as a minimum qualification.
