The ACCSC School of Excellence Award recognizes accredited member schools that, during their most recent five year period of accreditation have demonstrated a commitment to the expectations and rigors of ACCSC accreditation, as well as a commitment to delivering quality educational programs to the students, graduates and employers that deserve our best work. Through this award, it is ACCSC's intent to recognize the importance of this significant achievement, including completing the accreditation process without stipulation and having been timely in the submission of the fees and reports required of an ACCSC accredited institution.
