Self-accreditation, Glossary and Terms, Universities, Colleges, Campusess
List of United States Universities, Colleges, Campuses, Tuition and Expenses
Universities are 'self-accrediting'. This means that they have legislative authority to accredit their own programs and are responsible for their academic standards. Universities must have appropriate quality assurance processes in place, including peer assessment processes, external examination of higher degrees, and the involvement of professional bodies in the accreditation of particular programs.
