Hellenic American University has been granted accreditation status by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education. The U.S. Secretary of Education recognizes NEASC as “a reliable authority on the quality of education for the institutions it accredits”. The Commission is also recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
Accreditation by the Commission indicates that the institution meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process. An accredited college or university has been found to have the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs. It also gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future.
Accreditation by the Commission is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
