Our Graduate Success Stories

I chose to go to Herzing University because I'm a non-traditional student and they provided a twelve-month program to complete my LPN to RN degree.

These online programs are not programmatically approved by the American Bar Association (ABA, 321 North Clark Street, Chicago, Illinois, 60654-7598, 800-285-2221, www.americanbar.org). There are no plans to seek this approval for this online program. Some employers may prefer graduates from an ABA-approved program. Students are advised to consult with employers of preference as to the importance of this approval on their hiring decisions.
  8. Health Information Management: The Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management and the Associate of Science in Health Information Management programs offered online by Herzing University are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM, 233 North Michigan Avenue, 31st Floor, Chicago, Illinois, 60601-5800 312-233-1100, www.cahiim.org).

  9. Accounting: The Bachelor of Science in Accounting program at Herzing University, even when combined with the Herzing University MBA, may not fulfill all of the requirements for a graduate to take the certified public accountant (CPA) exam or apply for licensure as a CPA in some states/jurisdictions. In addition to requiring a specific amount of study beyond a bachelor’s degree (typically, a total of 150 semester credit hours, but this varies by jurisdiction), most states/jurisdictions require specific coursework, as well as several years of professional experience working in accounting, to be eligible to apply for licensure. Some states (including, but not necessarily limited to, Texas) require the accounting program to have a specific programmatic accreditation for graduates to apply for licensure as a CPA, which Herzing University programs do not have, and no representation has been made as to when or if such an accreditation will be obtained. Applicants interested in becoming a CPA should check with their state board of accountancy regarding CPA eligibility requirements prior to enrolling in any accounting program. Students planning to pursue certifications other than the CPA exam should also contact the respective certifying organization to confirm requirements for certification prior to enrolling in any accounting program.
  10. Business Programs: Herzing University has been awarded the status of Candidate for Accreditation by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE, 11374 Strang Line Road, Lenexa, Kansas, 913-631-3009, www.iacbe.org). Herzing University has affirmed its commitment to excellence in business education and is eligible to undergo an accreditation review of its business programs. Candidate status is neither a status of accreditation nor a guarantee that accreditation will be granted.
  11. Other Programs: No other programs at this campus have specialized programmatic accreditation. Students are advised to consult with employers of preference as to the importance of specialized programmatic accreditation on their hiring decisions.

The information does not reflect data regarding individual campuses unless only one campus had students to report. The reporting period used to obtain this data was 7/1/2012-6/30/2013. If there were less than 10 graduates in a program, median loan debt and on-time completion data were not disclosed for that program to protect the privacy of those students. Tuition and length may vary by campus location.
