ACCSC’s Standards of Accreditation provides an accountability framework for institutions that first and foremost seeks to ensure that institutions offer well developed programs that prepare students for their chosen fields of work, and second, requires institutions to assess continually and show success in meeting established program objectives. This accountability framework also helps to ensure that institutions grow in an appropriate and responsible fashion and in a manner that best meets the needs of students and of the employment community.
ACCSC’s Standards of Accreditation outline the expectations for accredited member institutions in such areas as:
Management and Administrative Operations,
Requirements for Residential and Distance Education Programs,
Educational Administration and Faculty Qualifications,
Student Recruiting and Advertising,
Admissions Policies and Practices,
Student Services, and
By applying for and receiving accreditation, a school accepts the obligation to demonstrate compliance with the Standards of Accreditation. Ultimately, ACCSC evaluates a school based on the school’s ability to accomplish its announced objectives and in accordance with the Commission’s standards.
Proposed Bylaws Revisions and Voting Instructions
December 28, 2012
The Accrediting Alliance of Career Schools and Colleges doing business as the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (“ACCSC” or “the Commission”) is putting forth a wide-range of proposed Bylaws revisions for election by the membership. The Commission came to these proposed revisions through its strategic planning process and has determined that the proposed revisions represent changes which are in the best interest of the organization and the ACCSC membership.
On December 28, 2012 the Commission emailed all ACCSC-accredited institutions a link to the electronic ballot which provides an opportunity for each ACCSC-accredited institution to vote on the proposed Bylaws revisions. This email also includes institution specific usernames and passwords for the electronic ballot. The ballot for the proposed revisions is set up by section (e.g., Section 1.01, Section 1.02, etc.) and members are asked to cast a “yes” or “no” vote for the revisions to each section separately. All votes must be cast by January 25, 2013.
If you have any questions regarding the electronic ballot, please contact Holly Miller at 703.247.4524 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
