When a University is accredited, it tells you that it meets the rigorous requirements set by the U.S Department of Education, which were designed to protect you as a student. Also crucial – an accredited University can offer Financial aid (FAFSA) to eligible students.
Programmatic accreditation also allows you to sit for licensure exams or national certifications if you successfully graduate from your program. While not required to obtain employment in the field, it proves to potential employers that you exceed the benchmark with specialized knowledge to be a competent professional in your industry.
