PROCESS OF EDUCATIONAL ACCREDITATIONS

 

In common definition, ACCREDITATION is a process in which activities of educational institution are thorough, carefully and completely examined by competent authority (non-governmental accrediting agencies, such as Accreditation Council for Educational Standards of Schools and Universities - ACESSU) that would issue certification of competency, authority, and credibility.

Higher education accreditation is an educational quality assurance process, where educational institution or program is evaluated by the independent external entity (accrediting agency) to determine if educational institution meets applicable standards for education offered. When educational institution conforms to the standards of educational process, accredited status is granted by the accrediting agency.

In many countries around the world, accreditation for higher education performed by a governmental agency, such as a ministry of education. In such cases, ministry of education performs licensing process that is similar to accreditation process.

Nevertheless, additional educational accreditation performed by independent authority, such as Accreditation Council for Educational Standards of Schools and Universities - ACESSU, can be a useful achievement in the form of additional assurance for students and increased level of trustworthiness, reliability and dependability for the educational institution.

Comparing to other countries, the United States has no ministry of education and assurance process (accreditation) always performed by private accrediting agencies (very often membership associations).

Accreditation entities have no any preferential status from legal point of view and all are operating under the same legal doctrine. Age of creation is not making one accreditation organization more legitimate comparing to any other organizations. Each accreditation organization has the same scale of abilities to perform accreditations.

EDUCATIONAL ACCREDITATIONS AT GLANCE

Accreditation by independent accreditation entity can provide multiple additional benefits for any institution offering educational services.

Higher education accreditation (for a single program or for the entire school, college or university) is a quality assurance process when services and operations of educational institution or program(s) are evaluated by independent entity that is not related to the original institution. Accreditations performed for the purpose of determination if reasonable standards of education are met. Upon successful completion of evaluation, accredited status is granted to the accreditation-seeking institution.

In many countries around the world, the function of educational accreditation for higher education is conducted by governmental organizations, for example, a ministry of education. In some countries, such as the United States, the quality assurance process performed by private membership organizations and is fully independent of governmental control. Even if your country’s government performs accreditation of local educational institutions, it is always beneficial to have a second form of accreditation performed by independent international organization that is not under control of the local government. Independent accreditation is a form of additional assurance that not only your own country’s standards, but also global (worldwide) standards of education are met. Accreditation Council for Educational Standards of Schools and Universities (ACESSU) is that international organization (located in the United States) that can provide accreditation that is based on the acceptable worldwide standards for education.
