Accreditation, Licensing and Associations
Accreditation is an optional educational management action by the US University Institution, but not practiced in the educational management of most other countries, including Portuguese-speaking ones. Accreditation is the validation of a university’s teaching program by an agency authorized to provide an academic assessment of the institution’s diploma award process. It is generally not practiced in countries outside the United States. Ministries of education in different countries regulate their own colleges and universities.
In the United States, there are regional accreditation associations, as well as selected private organizations, that accredit specific areas (for example, business and nursing).
What most students do not know is that the United States government does not control or regulate colleges, universities or accrediting associations, except in relation to the refund of fees for students who qualify for these funds.
American Universities are autonomous bodies that are subject to their own statutory rules and their American State of Origin. Even so, universities that enjoy a certain prestige in the United States of America have the accreditation of a university accreditation association.
Our University was responsible for winning important educational awards, which demonstrates the accreditation that the American Government, State Governments and Private Organizations have with regard to Uniforms.
Importance of Accreditation
Accreditation status can give an indication of a university’s overall quality and reputation.
• You are guaranteed a basic level of quality in education and services.
• Credits are more likely to be transferable to other accredited institutions.
• Your degree is more likely to be recognized and respected by other colleges and employers.
