Accreditation provides assurance to the public, in particular to prospective students, that an institution has been found to meet the agency's clearly stated requirements and criteria and that there are reasonable grounds for believing that it will continue to meet them.

Accreditation is achieved after the institution conducts an extensive, critical self-study and is examined by outside experienced evaluators. Perhaps most importantly, the process of accreditation provides an opportunity for critical self-analysis leading to improvement in quality and for consultation and advice from persons from other institutions.
