THE PROGRAM OF ACCREDITATION A. What is Accreditation? Accreditation is viewed as a process by which an institution at the tertiary level evaluates its educational activities, in whole or in part, and seeks an independent judgment to confirm that it substantially achieves its objectives, and is generally equal in quality to comparable institutions. B. Program As the Unit of Assessment Currently, accreditation in state colleges and universities is by program. A program is defined as a course or a group of related courses packaged in a curriculum and leading to a graduate or undergraduate degree. Examples of programs are

education, civil engineering, agriculture, etc. AACCUP is now considering other models, like, accrediting by institution as alternatives to, or to complement program accreditation. C. Other Attributes Aside from being program-focused, accreditation is: based on standards of the accrediting agency, which are normally higher than those set by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED)and other appropriate agencies, e.g. Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).; voluntary on the part of the higher education institution that may want to be accredited; an evaluation by peers, i. e. the external accreditors are mostly faculty members from

ACCREDITORS The actual accreditation survey visits are conducted by teams of accreditors usually composed of five (5) members per team per program staying in the host institution for a period of three (3) days. At present AACCUP has already trained over 900 senior faculty members with different specializations from different state universities and colleges. More than 500 have qualified, and 323 are active members of the Pool of Accreditors.
