Consumer Information Resources
Understanding what accreditation and state regulation are and why they are important is critical for making informed decisions when confronted with the various issues consumers might face. The resources below provide information on state and federal regulation, accreditation, financial aid, and available contacts who provide assistance when issues or questions arise.
Understanding Accreditation – Accreditation exists to ensure an institution meets quality standards. Accreditation acts as a means of conducting non-governmental, peer evaluation of educational institutions and programs. Private educational associations of regional or national scope have adopted criteria for a sound educational program. Accrediting agencies also developed procedures for evaluating institutions and programs to determine if institutions meet the established standards. Find more information on accreditation here.
Choosing the right school – Take some time to absorb the shared resources in our Consumer Information portal when making a decision about enrolling in a school.
NASASPS Contacts in Every State – Many users find the State Contact List of individuals working in their state’s departments of education particularly helpful.
Upon logging in, members will gain access to previous webinars, state regulator FAQs, state update survey results, and a full member directory.
