Accreditation is not required in the United States for Vocational Schools or Universities to legally operate as diploma or degree-awarding institutions. In the US, accreditation with an independent association of schools is an optional, not mandatory, course of action that Academies and Universities can choose to establish. Most countries do not have independent University accreditation organizations; rather, assessment is performed by a government educational regulating organization, similar to our California State Education Bureau which grants legality.
The US Department of Education (USDE) does not grant accreditation, furthermore, accreditation organizations in the US are not USDE governed. The US accreditation organizations are private institutionalized boards which grant a peer-review status of “accreditation” to Schools who choose to submit to their board review process. Most countries do not have private organizations which review and approve Academies, Vocational Schools or Universities as “accredited.” The biggest benefit of accreditation is the ease of opportunity for students to apply for government financial aide.
Note: Transfer of credits between all schools, whether accredited or State approved, is always dictated by the policies of each school office of the registrar.
