Accreditation is the principle of self-regulation that focuses on evaluation and enrichment as the institution continuously improves its quality of education. Accrediting agencies like PACUCOA provides certain standards and requirements to colleges/institutions to gain certification. Once this certification is granted, this means that the institution has fulfilled all the requirements set by the accreditor.
