Institutional Accreditation

All Sanford-Brown schools are institutionally accredited (accredited in total) by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), a national accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education (DOE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). This indicates that these schools substantially meet or exceed the stated criteria of education quality established by ACICS, and approved by the DOE and CHEA. This recognition of institutional accreditation by ACICS entitles Sanford-Brown schools to offer Title IV Financial Assistance to students who qualify.

Effective as of May 5, 2012, ACICS placed the Sanford-Brown College – Indianapolis, IN campus and the Sanford-Brown College – West Allis, WI campus on probation due to job placement rates that did not meet the expectations of ACICS. Despite the probation action, these schools remain accredited and this status does not affect the institution’s ability to continue to offer programs to existing or new students, confer academic credentials, and financial aid is available for students who qualify.

Accreditation is a voluntary process which may be undertaken by schools to demonstrate compliance with specific standards designed to indicate a level of education quality. Each campus has been approved by its respective Institutional Accreditor to offer all of its currently available programs.

Programmatic Accreditation

An additional form of accreditation that a school may undertake to obtain is a specific, individual accreditation of certain programs (programmatic accreditation). Institutional accreditation is not the same as or a substitution for programmatic accreditation. Although programmatic accreditation is not required for employment in many cases, the existence of programmatic accreditation is a further indication that a program meets the standards of the profession, and may therefore indirectly enhance employment opportunities. Also, in some cases, programmatic accreditation will allow the graduates of the accredited program to sit for some credentialing exams immediately upon graduation without any requirement of work experience.

It is important to understand what accreditation is and why it is important to Sanford-Brown. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that the education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality. DOE recognized accrediting agencies have adopted criteria reflecting the qualities of a sound educational program and have developed procedures for evaluating institutions or programs to determine whether or not they meet these criteria. The standards by which institutions or programs are measured have been developed by subject matter experts and are intended to include what is critical for students to learn in order to successfully pursue a given profession. Having this kind of oversight and ensuring compliance with stated standards is essential to maintaining quality for students. Institutional Accreditation measures the entire operations of a given campus. Programmatic accreditation evaluates the components of a given academic program. Sanford-Brown is committed to offering programs that live up to these standards so that we can help provide qualified and prepared graduates in the field of healthcare. We understand that accreditation is not merely a recognition granted once an institution or program is in substantial compliance with the stated standards, but is a privilege that we must continue to earn through disciplined actions and quality instruction.

Broadly, across our Sanford-Brown campuses, over 60 programs are currently programmatically accredited. Some accrediting agencies require that a new program graduate its first class before the program is eligible for programmatic accreditation but we strive to run our programs according to the standards of our relevant programmatic accreditors and are committed to seeking programmatic accreditation for our eligible programs. This includes not starting the first class until the clinical site requirement is formally demonstrated, not over seating classes, ensuring the self study process is part of the educational plan and making certain that the curriculum, facility, equipment, staff and leadership meet the programmatic accreditation requirements.

To learn about which programs are programmatically accredited by campus, see the detailed information below.
