Regional accreditation by agencies in the United States

There are six accrediting agencies in the United States, one in each region of the country. These agencies have developed criteria for evaluating postsecondary institutions to ensure they meet basic quality standards.

To obtain certification in Connecticut, all required credits must be awarded from institutions accredited by one of these six agencies. Additional information about regional accreditation is available on our website.

Connecticut now accepts official transcripts from nationally accredited and regionally accredited colleges and universities.
