Council for Higher Education Accreditation

The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) is the only higher education association in Washington, DC, established through a referendum of college and university presidents.  It is the largest institutional membership organization in higher education with approximately 3,000 degree-granting colleges and universities that join CHEA each year.  CHEA was created in 1996 to provide national coordination of institutional and programmatic accreditation.  CHEA offers advocacy and service to member institutions, accrediting organizations and the public.  It is the only national organization that is focused solely on accreditation.

Who Accredits the Accreditors?
CHEA is a private organization that recognizes accreditors that accredit degree-granting institutions or programs.

The U.S. Department of Education (USDE) recognizes institutions and schools that seek federal aid for students and/or foreign student visas.  Regional and faith-based institutions must be CHEA recognized prior to USDE recognition.  USDE does not recognize specialized or programmatic accreditors, rather the institutions where such programs reside.

AABI’s Recognition
As a specialized/programmatic accreditor recognized by CHEA, AABI is required to be in compliance with CHEA Recognition Policies and Procedures, including Paragraph 12(B) (10) of the 2010 CHEA Recognition Policy and Procedures: A practice of informing the public about the harm of degree mills and accreditation mills.  The following statement was developed by CHEA, and is provided here in compliance with CHEA policy:

IMPORTANT QUESTIONS ABOUT ACCREDITATION,
DEGREE MILLS AND ACCREDITATION MILLS

In their quest for higher education and training, students and the public in the United States sometimes encounter “degree mills” – dubious providers of educational offerings or operations that offer certificates and degrees that may be considered bogus.  They may also encounter “accreditation mills” – dubious providers of accreditation and quality assurance that may offer a certification of quality of institutions without a proper basis.
