As you may have heard that the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) revoked its recognition of the Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) as an accrediting agency. You may be wondering how this may have an impact on your status as a student.
We would like to make it clear that Cambridge Junior College (CJC) is a college of good standing in terms of accreditation and recognition by the Department of Education and Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education. The Department of Education’s decision regarding ACICS has nothing to do with practices of CJC and it should not be considered as a negative reflection on our standards. CJC still has the privileges of federal student financial assistance programs to those who qualify. The Department of Education gives us a window of 18 months to switch to another accreditation agency, which applies to all colleges and universities under the same circumstances.
CJC has already applied to earn accreditation from ACCSC and we are happy to share that our status is “In-Process Application”. This is an important step in earning accreditation with ACCSC and maintaining our status with the Department of Education, and it allows us to continue the process. The next steps for us are to address any questions ACCSC has about the application and prepare a Self-Evaluation Report in advance of an ACCSC visit to our campus. We have a firm belief that we will receive recognized accreditation within the specified timeframe.
Cambridge Junior College has 18 months following the loss of its Department-recognized accrediting agency to find a new accrediting agency to maintain eligibility to receive funds under Title IV, HEA programs. CJC will no longer be eligible to receive funds under Title IV, HEA programs only if CJC does not obtain accreditation by June 12, 2018.
We also would like to note that ACICS has taken legal action in federal court to reverse the decision, the outcome of which is pending and may take several months to resolve. CJC is taking necessary steps to ensure students are not affected by such a change regardless of the court decision.
Any student at Cambridge Junior College who has a complaint relating to Title IV eligibility or administration, the quality of education received at the Institution, or otherwise relating to the accreditation standards of its former accrediting agency can submit that complaint to CJC and/or to any of the following:
