When a program or institution is accredited, it ensures that its quality and delivery has been affirmed by external peer review and it reflects the standards of the academic community. This is simply what accreditation is. It serves as a mark of distinction, affirming an institution's commitment to producing highly skilled and competent educators who are equipped to make a positive impact on student learning and society. These standards are ascertained every 7 to 10 years.

Accreditations come in two forms: professional and institutional. TLAC is a professional accreditors because we examine divisions, schools, and colleges within a university or college. An institution, particularly a major university, may be accredited by a regional accreditor in addition to many professional accreditors at the same time.

TLAC recommends that students and the general public check the list of accredited institutions and acknowledged accrediting agencies on the websites of the US Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) to avoid coming across questionable providers of educational offerings or dubious providers of quality assurance.
