Hi all, in accordance with my last post explaining away some of the concerns I would like to quote the official legal text on ed.gov (the USA's federal regulation over accredidation agencies)
Cited from: http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/
The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by
institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality. Accrediting agencies, which are private educational associations of
regional or national scope, develop evaluation criteria and conduct peer evaluations to assess whether or not those criteria are met.
Institutions and/or programs that request an agency's evaluation and
that meet an agency's criteria are then "accredited" by that agency.
For more information on accreditation in the United States, please visit: http://www.ed.gov/admins/finaid/accred/index.html.
