helping institutions from elementary schools through colleges that
offer a postgraduate education, it is not a government organization.

Accreditation is an important aspect of a University. It helps you if
you are unable to afford to pay for your college, because an accredited
college can accept financial aid from the government. It also
encourages colleges to maintain a certain standard for the education
that you as a student will receive.

college. Filling out the necessary applications for government
financial aid is an important first step. Not everyone will get money,
