Mission and Goals of Accreditation

Accreditation has two fundamental purposes: to assure the quality of the institution and to encourage institutional improvement.  Colleges follow a six-year accreditation cycle during which institutional review is continuous.  There were substantive changes made by the Accrediting Commission resulting in The 2002 Standards of Accreditation. These new standards require institutions to define expected student learning outcomes and assess them in order to improve learning at the course, program, and degree or institutional level and changes to the institution designed to improve learning.
