What does accreditation mean and what is the advantage for a student?

Accreditation makes the transition easier as students move from one accredited school to another. The regional nature of accreditation allows a receiving school in the same or another state to assess the quality of a sending school and accept the incoming student’s credits and academic record. This ease of transfer applies across the nation through reciprocal agreements between the regional accrediting agencies.

An individual school may also evaluate unaccredited course work and transfer such credits into a degree plan. Carroll Institute evaluates all transcripts submitted to determine if a student’s previous course work from another institution will be acceptable for transfer.
