Accreditation

Accreditation

Students should be aware that there are multiple types of accreditation and that their intended entry into their chosen profession could be impacted by these differences. For example, institutional accreditation means all students attending Herzing University are attending an accredited institution.

In addition, there are programmatic accreditation bodies which accredit specific programs (as opposed to the institution). Some states require that specific programs, even at regionally accredited institutions like Herzing University, be programmatically accredited as well. The importance of programmatic accreditation can range from a requirement to sit for licensure exams that are mandatory to work in a field to a requirement to sit for a certification exam that is not required for all employment in the field (but may be slightly to strongly preferred by employers, depending on the market) to a symbol of quality with no impact on any certification or licensure (but which may be slightly or strongly preferred by employers, depending on the market). Therefore, Herzing University has not pursued all forms of programmatic accreditation available, as this is a determination on whether the costs and requirements to do so are worth the value to the student in the respective marketplaces in the estimation of the University. The student should validate whether the specialized accreditation of a specific program, or lack thereof, is going to fit their career goals for their respective marketplace.

As a result, there is a potential that some states will not permit a student who has completed certain academic programs to become certified, licensed, or sit for a certifying or licensing examination if they graduated from a program that is not programmatically accredited.  Herzing University believes in complete and forthright disclosure for each program we offer, so we clearly identify those programs that are programmatically accredited. If a Herzing University program at a specific campus (or one that is offered online) does not state it has programmatic  accreditation in writing, students should assume the program does not have programmatic accreditation. Students should not rely on oral or unofficial confirmation of programmatic accreditation. Students are responsible for understanding the specific requirements for certification, licensing, and for eligibility to sit for a particular licensing examination of the state or locale in which they want to enter or practice their profession. Herzing University makes no representation, unless explicitly written, that students graduating in a particular program qualify for certification, licensing, or eligibility to sit for a licensing examination in a particular state. For further clarification, students should review the specialized program accreditation/approvals stated in the catalog and read and sign the Accreditation Disclosure for their respective campus.

Specialized Program Accreditations, Certifications, and Licensures by Campus

Herzing University also holds programmatic accreditations or approvals for selected programs at selected locations. Not all programs require specialized programmatic accreditation, and some new programs must be in operation for a period of time before specialized accreditation can be obtained. Specialized programmatic accreditation may be required for graduates to be eligible to take some licensure or certification examinations. Unless this catalog specifically and unequivocally states that a particular program at a particular campus (including the Online Campus) is programmatically accredited and qualifies a student for licensing, certification, or to be eligible to sit for a licensing examination, students should conclude the program offered on the campus they are enrolled at is not programmatically accredited. Students should independently investigate the specific licensing requirements for their program in the specific state or locale for which they anticipate seeking employment.
