Department of Education no longer recognizes ACICS as an approved accrediting agency.

 

The Department of Education no longer recognizes the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools as an approved accrediting agency.  Only institutions that are accredited by an agency that is recognized by the Department of Education are eligible to participate in the Federal Title IV Program.

 As a result of the Department of Education’s decision to de-recognize ACICS, Global Health College has 18 months following the accrediting agency’s loss of recognition to find a new federally-recognized accrediting agency to maintain eligibility to receive funds under Title IV, HEA programs.  Based on the Department of Education's 18-month timeline for obtaining alternative accreditation, we must obtain a new federally-recognized accrediting agency by May 11, 2018.  During this period, Global Health College remains eligible to participate in the Title IV program. 

In February of this year, Global Health College did submit an application for accreditation with another accrediting agency.

Any complaints relating to Title IV eligibility or administration, the quality of education received at Global Health College, or otherwise relating to the accreditation standards of ACICS can submit that complaint

to Global Health College of any of the following institutions:
