Our accrediting agency is National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences, NACCAS.

Graduates may be excluded from the placement calculation if: 1) the graduate is deceased, 2) the graduate is permanently disabled, 3) the graduate is deployed for military service/duty, 4) the graduate studied under a student visa and is ineligible for employment in the U.S. or 5) the graduate continued his/her education at an institution under the same ownership.
