New Guidance for Accrediting Agencies Will Strengthen Information Sharing and Transparency

Accrediting agencies’ stamp of approval for colleges and universities serves as both an indicator of quality to students and families and a “gatekeeper” to over $150 billion in federal student aid. But sometimes, the information accreditors provide is confusing to students or insufficient to inform the Department of Education’s oversight functions. When that happens, it can jeopardize the studies and career prospects of students who rely on accreditors’ approval and put taxpayer dollars at risk.
