Schiller International University has been granted new institutional accreditation by the Accrediting Commission of Careers Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).  

We thus achieve the desired outcome after applying to ACCSC as part of our 2020-2025 strategic plan for Institutional Effectiveness and Academic Excellence. "Achieving ACCSC Accreditation is an important milestone that solidifies our reputation as a recognized institution of higher education. This means that our programs, faculty, and administrative processes have met the stringent standards set forth by the ACCSC. This accomplishment reflects the quality of education and services we provide to our students, as well as the tireless efforts of our talented staff" says Marta Muñiz, CEO President of Schiller International University. 

ACCSC is recognized by the United States Department of Education as the designated institutional accrediting body for over 650 post-secondary institutions that provide education to over 150,000 students in a wide variety of programs each year. 

The role of accreditation in higher education is to serve as an indicator of acceptable quality across a wide array of postsecondary schools and educational programs. Accreditation is voluntary, but it is necessary to qualify for certain kinds of federal aid.  

A good fit for Schiller International University

ACCSC accreditation means that our programs are relevant to the needs and demands of specific industries. The agency ensures that curriculum, faculty qualifications, and facilities are suitable for preparing students for successful careers in their chosen fields, which fits well with our experiential methodology approach and our focus on employability. 

Also, just like we do, ACCSC places a strong emphasis on student outcomes and success. The agency assesses various indicators such as graduation rates, job placement rates, licensure examination pass rates, and student satisfaction. This focus on student success aligns with Schiller’s goal of providing our students with the skills and resources demanded by the job market. 

Furthermore, ACCSC accreditation involves peer evaluation by experienced professionals in the field. This allows Schiller to receive feedback, guidance, and recommendations from industry experts and educators who are familiar with the challenges and opportunities in career-focused education. Peer evaluation can facilitate the sharing of best practices, promote continuous improvement, and help us stay updated with industry trends. 

We are excited about what is to come. We will continue to offer a broad range of academic programs, attract exceptional faculty and students, and strengthen our position as a leader in education. This achievement not only benefits our institution but also enhances the value and prestige of every degree earned by our students.
