ACCREDITATION, LICENSES, AND APPROVALS
Institutional and program assessments are conducted periodically by qualified examiners and members of the college’s accrediting body and/or by accrediting teams. The purpose of these assessments is to examine and evaluate compliance of the College’s programs, staff, and faculty with accrediting standards and state and federal regulations. Licensure indicates only that minimum standards have been met; it is not an endorsement or guarantee of quality. Licensure is not equivalent to or synonymous with an accreditation by an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S Department of Education.
