LA6205 Discussion 4.1

Read “Corinthian Colleges Sparks Debate Over Accreditation” (Education News) and “Education Department Establishes Enhanced Federal Aid Participation Requirements for ACICS-Accredited Colleges” (U.S. Department of Education).

Imagine you are the accreditation coordinator at a school that is currently accredited by Corinthian’s accreditor, the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS). How will your institution be affected? What options does your institution have for gaining an alternative accreditor? Will you recommend trying to obtain a regional accreditor, or seek out a different national one? What are the advantages and disadvantages of either choice?
