Accreditation

Mildred Elley is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to award diplomas, certificates, and the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) and Associate in Occupational Studies (A.O.S.) degrees. ACICS is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). ACICS’ scope of accreditation is recognized through the Master’s Degree level.

Mildred Elley is transitioning to a new accreditor whose mission and goals align closely with our institutional goals.  We began a search for a new accreditor in the summer of 2016 and in November, 2016, we initiated an application with an accreditor recognized by the United States Secretary of Education for the accreditation of private, postsecondary institutions.

As of December 12, 2016, our current accreditor, ACICS is no longer recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Mildred Elley has 18 months following the loss of our accrediting agency’s recognition to find a new accrediting agency to maintain eligibility to receive funds under the Title IV, HEA programs. If Mildred Elley does not obtain accreditation within that 18 month period, which ends June 12, 2018, our school will no longer be eligible to receive funds under Title IV, HEA programs.  We anticipate being granted accreditation by the new accrediting agency by the end of first quarter of 2018 to maintain our students’ eligibility to receive federal financial aid funds.

If any student has a complaint relating to Mildred Elley’s Title IV eligibility, administration of the Title IV programs, the quality of education received at Mildred Elley, or otherwise relating to the accreditation standards of ACICS they can submit that complaint to
