What does “Accredited” or “Accreditation” mean?
Accreditation means that a school has met national standards of educational performance which have been established by an impartial non-governmental agency. The accrediting of schools by professional, national and regional associations of like schools (schools with similar objectives and subject content), has long characterized the American educational scene. Through the years, accreditation of schools has been the most authoritative and reliable index of a school’s concern for integrity toward its students and quality education.
We understand that thinking about the cost of schooling to obtain a career can be overwhelming to many individuals or families. With the use of Net Price Calculators, Parents and students alike can be better prepared with the estimated costs of schooling after grants or scholarships have been applied. This information is only a guide, actual costs and award amounts may vary and we recommend speaking to a Career Counselor directly.
Net Price Calculator
The Net Price Calculator was developed to help families of prospective students prepare for educational costs as part of the amended Higher Education Act of 1965. An individual student and parental financial information will be used to calculate an estimated, academic year net price that new students will pay after grants and scholarships (gift aid) to attend school and what their estimated total cost of attendance may be, including tuition, books, kits, room and board, personal expenses, as well as grants and scholarships.
