  Rochville University is accredited by two recognized accreditation institutions:   the Board of Online Universities Accreditation (BOUA) and the Universal Council for Online Education Accreditation (UCOEA). These accreditation agencies are committed to improving the educational standards of online universities by establishing stringent quality standards. Both are among the largest non-governmental accreditation agencies with members from all over the United States.

  What is accreditation?

  Accreditation is a form of peer review. Accreditation of an educational institution guarantees that the learning offered by that institution is of a uniform and sound quality.

  Why is accreditation important for a university?

  Being an accredited university assures the public, in particular prospective students, that a particular university has been found to meet quality educational standards and criteria.

  How is accreditation beneficial for students?

  Students receive the following benefits with an accredited university:
Assurance that the institution is meeting certain educational quality standards.
Reasonable grounds for believing that the institution will continue to meet them.
Assurance that their degrees will be widely accepted by employers, professional associations, and other colleges and universities.
Belief that their degree will produce the benefits associated with sound, high-quality educational standards.

  On what grounds is accreditation offered?

The accreditation board establishes criteria that institutions are required to meet in order to become accredited. The accrediting board evaluates an institution in terms of its mission, educational practices, administration, financial stability, policies, and student services. Only the institutions meeting accreditation standards in all these areas are granted accreditation.

There are several non-governmental accrediting agencies or boards that have established certain educational standards and are helping institutions to build online educational standards. The organizations performing accreditation services include:

Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSACS)
New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC)
North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCACS)
Northwest Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (NASCU)
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)
Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC)
Board of Online Universities Accreditation (BOUA)
Universal Council for Online Education Accreditation (UCOEA)
International Accreditation Agency for Online Universities (IAAOU)
World Online Education Accrediting Commission (WOEAC)
  All these boards and agencies are well-known and the institutions receiving their accreditation benefit from the same level of credibility and recognition worldwide.
