In the United States, accreditation is a process of peer review that confers upon an institution a mark of quality and distinction recognized and respected throughout higher education. It is a higher education seal of approval for schools, employers, and most importantly, for students. Students who earn a degree at an accredited institution can be confident that the quality of education meets the standards of the accrediting body. Northcentral University (NCU) is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the Northcentral Association of Colleges and Schools (HLC), and business programs in NCU’s School of Business and Technology Management are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). NCU was the first online school to receive this accreditation across all degree levels. In addition, NCU’s Master of Education program was recently granted Initial accreditation by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) for a period of five years. This accreditation applies to the program’s eight PK-12 specializations and certifies that the MEd program has provided evidence that the program adheres to TEAC’s quality principles.
