ABOUT ACCREDITATION GENERALLY

Accreditation is a developmental and reliable process of becoming valid and credible in an institution's purported mission. Accreditation is systematic, and provides consistent validation of the proclaimed achievements and functions of an institution.

Accreditation is a concept and practice receiving increasing world-wide attention but which has its origins and principal evolution in the United States from circa 1880.

Accreditation is voluntary and has been so from its beginnings.

All accrediting agencies in the United States are private, non-profit, nongovernmental bodies. 

Accreditors employ peer evaluations to exact the required standards of performance expected by the academic, professional, and technical communities, in their comprehensive scrutiny of those institutions that voluntarily submit themselves to the accreditation process.

The NAPNSC Accrediting Commission originated, as did all other legitimate accrediting agencies, from expressed need by peer institutions, and prospective, current and graduated students and their employers, for reliable verifications from the accreditor.
