What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is a process by which U.S. institutions of higher education undergo a peer review to assess and certify educational excellence. Institutions must meet a rigorous set of common quality standards established by the accrediting body. Salem Community College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. An institution must be accredited in order to receive federal loans and grants, including student financial aid.
