Accreditation of U.S. schools: What does it mean for international students?

美国大学认证对于国际学生意味着什么?

Program date 活动时间: Feb.9th, 2017    2017年2月9

Overview “The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality.” In the United States, accreditation is a major way that students, families, government officials, and the press know that an institution or program provides a quality education.  (http://www.chea.org/public_info/index.asp) 认证的目的是确保高等教育机构的教学水平达到规范标准。在美国,“认证”是学生,家长,政府和媒体用来衡量学校是否达到高质量教育的标准。

No official ranking system exists for colleges and universities in the United States. The best college or university is the one that is best for you and meets your requirements — academic, financial, and personal. 在美国,没有针对学院和大学的官方排名。 所谓最好的学校,是满足自身的要求-学术,经济和个人需求。

Individual Program vs. Institutional Accreditation 单独课程和学院认证:

Institutional accreditation normally applies to an entire institution, indicating that each of an institution's parts is contributing to the achievement of the institution's objectives, although not necessarily all at the same level of quality.学院认证是指针对整个学校。每个学院的质量要求标准不一定要一致。

Specialized or programmatic accreditation normally applies to programs, departments, or schools that are parts of an institution. The accredited unit may be as large as a college or school within a university or as small as a curriculum within a discipline. www.chea.org

课程认证通常是针对一个学校中的某个课程或者学院。被认证的部门可以是大到学院或者小到大学里面的一个院系甚至课程。
