Home About Accreditation


Accreditation is the process by which a recognized external organization evaluates and verifies that an educational institution or a program meets certain predetermined standards for quality and rigor. Accreditation is typically granted by independent organizations or agencies, and it involves a thorough evaluation of an institution or program's curriculum, faculty, facilities, and student outcomes.

Accreditation holds significant importance for several reasons. It serves as a guarantee to students, parents, and universities that an educational institution has met specific standards of quality and rigor. Moreover, it plays a crucial role in ensuring that the educational institution equips students with the necessary knowledge and skills to excel in their chosen field of study.
