|Accredited Schools|| |
An accredited school is a campus-based or online learning institution deemed accredited by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE). Accreditation ensures that schools meet rigorous and up-to-date standards of education and professionalism. To become accredited, schools must undergo evaluation and approval of curricula by a DOE-approved accreditation board. Advantages of attending an accredited school include 1) credits earned at accredited schools are often transferable to other accredited schools and advanced degree programs, and 2) accredited schools are eligible for more financial aid options, particularly from the state and federal governments.
