Accreditation

What is accreditation?

Accreditation means that a program or institution has gone through a rigorous review and evaluation process by experts in the field. Accreditation assures that the quality of teaching, student achievement, curricula, academic support, and other criteria meet certain standards of excellence and quality.

Why is accreditation so important?

Accreditation is a process that gives public notification that Rutgers University and Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden meets the set of quality standards set forth by an accrediting agency. Typically, accrediting agencies require an institution to conduct an extensive self-study report. The self-study demonstrates a commitment to assess what the university and school are currently doing, and continually seek ways to enhance and improve academic offerings. Accreditation is critical to maintaining the good stature of the university and the school, and ensures that a student's degree is taken seriously and is of value to them after graduation.
