Accreditation is the process by which institutions of higher learning are evaluated to ensure that the education they provide meets acceptable standards. Kaplan Higher Education schools and learning institutions are accredited by one of several national
or regional accrediting associations recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit colleges, universities, and postsecondary institutions.
There are two main types of institutional accreditation: Regional
accreditors accredit public and private, mainly nonprofit as well as proprietary degree-granting schools. National
accreditors accredit mainly career-based institutions, many of which offer shorter programs such as diplomas or certificates, in addition to degrees.
While institutional accreditation evaluates the quality of an entire institution, programmatic (or “specialty”) accreditation evaluates individual programs and may permit graduates to sit for certification or licensure exams required for
certain types of employment.
Kaplan Higher Education is proud of the accreditation under which its various schools and institutions operate. Please note that the schools and institutions listed below are separate and independent operations and therefore the specific accrediting
agency will vary by institution. Choose a school or institution from the list below to view specific details about its accreditation.
