Accreditations and Approvals

Minnesota School of Business & Globe University are accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS)1. ACICS is listed as a nationally recognized accrediting agency by the United States Department of Education and is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

What accreditation means

Accredited schools are those that meet educational standards of quality established by the U.S. Department of Education. Accreditation is awarded by independent organizations, such as the above-mentioned ACICS, and is a voluntary process. Schools that have obtained accreditation are eligible for federal loan and grant programs. Read more about ACICS, as well as the history of accreditation and its importance as you choose an educational provider.

Employment and transfer of credits

Often, employers require applicants to have been educated by a provider recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Accreditation can also be helpful when transferring academic credits to another institution, although the receiving institution will make the final decision on what credits to accept, and that decision may not be based on accreditation.
