Accreditation is the system used in the United States to determine if institutions of higher education meet acceptable levels of educational quality. It is a system of peer evaluation, whereby those who have been awarded accreditation, meet a set of criteria imposed by the recognized accrediting body.
Regional or Institutional Accreditation
There are six regional accrediting bodies, responsible for accrediting institutions of higher education incorporated within their regional boundaries. Regional accreditation looks at the college or university as a whole. KYSATS recognizes all these Educational Institutions as University level Higher Education Institutions.
