Irvine, CA, June 28, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- “Accreditation of any academic institution is deemed necessary because only through a valid accreditation status the institute or university is not only considered legitimate and capable of embarking professional degrees to students but also the curriculum, facilities that the institution offers along with the faculty, quality of environment and other institutional facilities are evaluated and approved as per the quality standards of education set by independent bodies to assure better transition of knowledge from learned minds of the faculty to the fresh minds of the students.” The excerpt was the central idea of the webinar conducted by the Paramount California University few days back. The webinar was attended by the students and faculty of the university and learned minds from different industries were present to emphasize the importance of accreditation at every level of the education acquisition process.
The main highlight of the webinar was the benefits of accreditation that were narrated by the speakers;
Some of the benefits that were highlighted were:
Quality of the education – Accreditation is a process that is used around the globe including the United States of America and through which the quality and standards of education are assessed, monitored and evaluated as per a set standard which is set by the accreditation body. It is because of the process of accreditation that students, returning students and working adults are certain that the education they are paying for is worth the money and effort and will bring valuable change to their lifestyles.
A valid accreditation status of any institution states that the institution meets and surpass the standards of quality education set by the accrediting organization in terms of course curriculum, faculty, student services and administration.
Scholarship opportunities – The federal government of United States relies heavily on the accreditation bodies in order to establish and assure the quality of education embarked at any university/institute by awarding them with different types of accreditation status after successful review of the institute’s characteristics.
Students who are interested in obtaining federal or state educational grants should always make sure that the institute they are enrolling in has a valid accreditation status by any of the accepted and known accreditation bodies, because federal and state grants are always sanctioned to students who are studying at accredited institutes in USA.
Credits transfer – At any point in life, many working adults prefer to continue their education which they left due to any personal or professional reasons. In order to continue their education they want to get their credits that they earned earlier to the new degree/diploma program that they wish to pursue, because by doing so they can save unnecessary time, effort and money. Accreditation is a crucial factor when an institute or university is deciding to accept transferred credits of any student to a degree program offered at their premises. Almost all the accredited institutes and universities will not accept credits that are earned from an unaccredited educational institute.
Employment opportunities – graduates of accredited universities experience far more employment opportunities than students who have graduated from unaccredited institutes. A degree/diploma form an accredited institute suggests that the student has the right skill set which is required for any specific job description, thus making employment easier. Also, it is witnessed that graduates of accredited universities are more proactive in working and have increased problem solving skills than their counterparts.
