Accreditation is the process whereby a professional association or nongovernmental agency grants recognition to a school or program the ability to meet predetermined established criteria or standards. Including approval of governance, curriculum, quality of its faculty, adequacy of facilities, library, equipment, laboratories, and assessment.

To assure its stature and academic excellence, a college obtains accreditation from both regional and national agencies and professional organizations and joins certain accrediting organizations.
