University Accreditation is a process by which the services and operations of participating universities are examined by a third-party accrediting agency to determine if applicable standards are met. Should the university meet the accrediting agency's standards, the school receives accredited status. Potential students should be aware of online institutions that are either unaccredited or are accredited by agencies that are not recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
