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

AKRON CAMPUS OF HERZING UNIVERSITY


2. State Approval: All programs at the Akron Campus of Herzing University are approved by the Ohio
    Board of Regents (25 South Front Street, Columbus, Ohio, 43215-3414, 614-466-6000,
    www.ohiohighered.org/contact-us).

 

 

 

BROOKFIELD CAMPUS OF HERZING UNIVERSITY

 2. State Approval: Herzing University Brookfield operates in the State of Wisconsin pursuant to its status as a private non-profit institution that is tax-exempt under section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code and that has had its administrative headquarters and principal place of business in Wisconsin since prior to 1970, which under Wisconsin Statutes Section 38.50(1)(e) exempts it from additional state authorization requirements.

 

7. Physical Therapist Assistant:

Graduation from a physical therapist assistant education program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), 1111 North Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314; phone; 703-706-3245; accreditation@apta.org  is necessary for eligibility to sit for the licensure examination, which is required in all states.

The Brookfield Campus of Herzing University is seeking accreditation of a new physical therapist assistant education program from CAPTE. The program has submitted an Application for Candidacy, which is the formal application required in the pre-accreditation stage. Submission of this document does not assure that the program will be granted Candidate for Accreditation status. Achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status is required prior to implementation of the technical phase of the program; therefore, no students may be enrolled in technical courses until Candidate for Accreditation status has been achieved. Further, though achievement of Candidate for Accreditation status signifies satisfactory progress toward accreditation, it does not assure that the program will be granted accreditation.

 

 

 

 

HERZING UNIVERSITY ONLINE

2.

State Approvals

Herzing University is authorized to offer undergraduate educational programs in the various states in which it operates by the following state boards, commissions, and departments, or otherwise pursuant to applicable state law. Not all programs are available in all states. Students should not confuse permission for Herzing University to operate in a state or educate students from a particular state online with special or programmatic approvals that may be required or preferred to work in a given field in some states. Students should independently investigate and ensure that the program they desire is offered on the campus they intend to enroll in via the desired format and with the potential outcome they desire. Students should rely only on the written information provided in the academic catalog and not on oral or unofficial representations or other documents. The fact that a program is currently offered on a campus does not ensure, nor does Herzing University guarantee, that all courses will always be available on that campus in the specific format the student selected; however, a student will always be provided with a path to completion, despite the potential change in format of course offerings.

Herzing University Online has made a good-faith effort to follow each individual state’s regulations concerning offering distance educational programs in that respective state. Students should investigate and ensure that the program they desire, if offered in a distance/online format, meets the requirements of the profession in their state.  Herzing University makes every effort to ensure it is in compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and accreditation standards.

Therefore, it is possible that Herzing University has the authority to offer degrees to students through license, exemption or non-regulation by one State that does not exist in another State.

Failure to assure whether or not Herzing University has the ability to offer degrees in the State of a student's new residency could result in the student having to be dismissed by the University as may be required by law.  For additional information, e-mail your questions to states@herzing.edu.
