An accredited program is a quality program. Accreditation is a formal peer-review process that assures the quality of the education students receive. Educational institutions or programs volunteer to undergo a periodic review to determine if certain criteria are being met. It is important to understand, however, that accreditation is not a ranking system. It is simply an assurance that a program or institution meets established quality standards.
