Accreditation is a process of external quality review used by higher education to scrutinize colleges, universities, and educational programs for quality assurance and quality improvement. Institutions and programs seek accreditation to assure their academic quality to students and the public (Council of Higher Education Accreditation ).
Two types of accreditation are regional and programmatic. Regional accreditation is granted to entire institutions of higher education. Specialized or programmatic accreditation focuses on a single educational program and is related to a specific discipline. North Carolina Central University holds both types of accreditation. In addition, five administrative units at the university are accredited by their respective accrediting agencies.
