The Importance of Accreditation

Fall 2011| Archives

The accreditation process for colleges and universities compares these institutions to established standards of excellence in such areas as degree programs, financial stability, admissions and student services, institutional effectiveness, governance and administration and relationships with internal and external constituencies.

What this means for students is that they are able to obtain federal loans and grants, employers see that their degrees meet or exceed established standards for education and courses are generally more acceptable for transfer to other schools.

MCC as a whole is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Additionally, many individual programs hold their own special accreditations by professional associations. This includes accreditation for the Automotive Technology and Auto Collision Technology programs through the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation, for the Early Childhood Education program by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and for the Associate Degree Nursing program by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.
