What is Accreditation? Accreditation is a private, voluntary, non-governmental peer-review process that reviews an institution or program's educational quality. Accreditation is a multi-year process to confirm that this institution has voluntarily undergone an extensive examination and self-study by a recognized accreditation and education quality body to ensure it demonstrates that the university meets the accreditation standards. Legitimate universities can obtain accredited status by clearly indicating that it has established mission, vision, values, and commitments to serve students and deliver quality education.
