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 respective7 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.

Program Offered Nationwide by Herzing University to Help Connect People with Careers, as Unemployment Remains High, but Skills Shortages Emerge for Employers

TOLEDO (October 5, 2011) – Herzing University – Toledo announced today that it is offering a new, free College Preparation Course for individuals who have thought about continuing their education but aren’t quite sure they’re ready. The program is part of a nationwide initiative by Herzing University to lend a hand to individuals who need additional education and training to improve their career potential, but are reluctant to make the commitment due to fears about everything from study skills to work-life balance.

“We hear from so many potential students who really want to pursue additional education to help them move up to better jobs and careers, but they really need the support and confidence to proceed and make that investment in themselves,” said Renée Herzing, president of Herzing University. “We’re making this investment of free classes for students nationwide across all 12 locations as well as Herzing University Online, in an effort to help both individuals and employers to succeed, with skills and education that are aligned with today’s workforce.”

MILWAUKEE, WI (February 24, 2014) – Have you ever driven past a field of windmills and wondered who maintains them and keeps them running? It could be you, with an associate degree or diploma in Wind Energy Technology, now available from Herzing University – Online.

It also covers DC and AC electricity, motors and generators, fluid power, programmable logic controllers and basic mechanics. In addition, students will earn certification in OSHA 10, basic safety and CPR, and a Suzlon Climbing Certificate.

Charles Clayton, Training Manager at Suzlon Wind Energy’s North American training facility agreed that interest in wind energy is on the rise. “Wind energy is just cresting on its potential,” he said.

MTMI is the first to provide medical imaging professionals with access
to continuing education via live, interactive webinar simulcast technology

WAUKESHA, WI (May 16, 2013) – Medical Technology Management Institute (MTMI) will offer nearly all of its 2013 continuing education (CE) seminars for medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals in live webinar simulcast format, the first education institute in its field to offer this convenient, cost-effective option.

 “We recognize that the healthcare delivery system is undergoing tremendous changes with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, as well as the impact of sequestration, both of which have created pressure on training budgets,” said Ed Barnes, president of MTMI. “These budget pressures have made it more difficult for healthcare organizations to pay for all of the training that their professionals require, plus their travel to seminar locations, so we developed webinars and the new interactive webinar simulcast format to help them bridge that financial gap while still experiencing a high quality educational experience.”

The simulcast is a simultaneous streaming of the live program over the internet that enables students to be part of the live cyber-audience with the same opportunity to ask questions or hear others’ questions of the instructor, providing the same educational experience as the classroom students receive.  MTMI also offers many programs via live webinar.

Barnes added, “Students have told us they like the convenience of participating from anywhere there is an internet connection, which allows them to more easily fit continuing education into their busy lives.”

Education that requires hands-on training with medical imaging equipment will continue to be delivered as live classroom and laboratory experiences.  MTMI will also continue to offer an array of courses and seminars in the classroom throughout the U.S. and Canada for individuals who prefer to learn in a face-to-face setting.

Simulcast, webinar and live seminar schedules are available on the MTMI website at www.mtmi.net.

Toledo - Transfer Friendly

NEW “P.A.C.E.” PROGRAM ELIMINATES OBSTACLES TO FINISHING A BACHELOR’S DEGREE

TOLEDO, OH (July 15, 2013) Two local schools have joined forces to help make obtaining a bachelor’s degree more affordable. The presidents ofHerzing University – Toledo and Northwest State Community College held a signing ceremony to announce a new P.A.C.E. program, which gives students an education option that is Progressive, Attainable, Convenient, and Economical. The collaboration offers students the best of both worlds: the cost efficiencies of a Northwest State education combined with the career-focused recognition of Herzing University. 

The cost of higher education, the challenges of a work-school-family balance, and other potential obstacles are discouraging many students from pursuing a college education. This initiative looks to remove some of those barriers, making students’ dreams to better their lives through education a reality. 

“While many colleges and universities are usually in competition to enroll students, we recognize that collaborations should be happening instead to make higher education more affordable and accessible,” said Greg Guzman, president of Herzing University’s Toledo campus. “The P.A.C.E. program is all about the student—which is the way it should be.” 

"As a community college, Northwest State is pleased to be working with Herzing to provide new opportunities that will allow our students to move forward with their education beyond the associate degree,” said Dr. Thomas Stuckey, Northwest State Community College president. “Our students are looking for flexible options that will build on their current skills and gain the knowledge needed to advance in their chosen career field." 

Currently students are able to pursue the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, which includes the highly-sought after SAP educational component, and already there are plans to add degrees in technology, healthcare, and public safety to the program offerings. 

To take advantage of the P.A.C.E. program, students would complete two-thirds (or three years) of their coursework through Northwest State Community College, which offers a lower per-credit hour cost of a community college. Students would then finish the final third (or one year) of their bachelor’s degree through Herzing University – Toledo. The two schools are compatible because both institutions are regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and are members of the North Central Association. 

As a matter of convenience, Herzing University – Toledo has the ability to offer a student’s remaining business courses either in the classroom or online. As Lucas County’s first SAP University Alliance Institution, Herzing University – Toledo also is in a unique position to offer training that is in great demand by local corporations and businesses.   

“Herzing’s bachelor’s in business management degree helps to bridge the gap between higher education and the needs of Northwest Ohio’s employers,” said Guzman. “Those who pursue this business management degree will position themselves competitively for any future openings at some of the region’s largest and most prestigious companies.” Sixty percent of all businesses globally run on the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform.  Locally, companies such as Owens-Illinois, Owens Corning, The Andersons, The City of Toledo, Marathon Oil, Cooper Tire, Rexam, Chrysler, Ford, and Pilkington use the software platform to manage their businesses. Their need for a qualified and trained workforce is well-established. 

            Those interested in learning about the P.A.C.E. initiative should contact Herzing University – Toledo Director of Admissions Corey Heiserman at 419.776.0300 or the Northwest State Community College admissions department at 419.267.5511.
