Founded in 1912, ACICS is the largest national accrediting organization of degree-granting institutions. We accredit professional, technical and occupational programs, and are one of two national accreditors recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation with a scope that includes private postsecondary institutions offering certificates, diplomas and degrees from the Associate’s through the Master’s.
Colleges and schools accredited by ACICS are required to meet and maintain high standards of faculty qualifications, student retention and student placement.
