This is the fifth edition of a list of postsecondary educational institutions and programs that are accredited by, or that have preaccredited status awarded by, the regional and national accrediting agencies formally recognized by the Secretary of Education. In addition to the lists of postsecondary specialized and vocational institutions and institutions of higher education accredited as of September 1, 1980, this publication includes those having preaccredited status with the recognized accrediting agencies. Not included are lists of institutions that are approved, recognized, classified, or licensed by state agencies. The introduction offers information on the following: functions of accreditation, the accrediting procedure, types of accreditation, national recognition (including criteria and procedures from the Federal Register for recognizing accrediting bodies), preaccreditation status definition, the Division of Eligibility and Agency Evaluation within the U.S. Bureau of Postsecondary Education and the functions of the National Advisory Committee on Accreditation and Institutional Eligibility as established by the Education Amendments of 1980. Part I of the volume lists accredited or preaccredited postsecondary educational institutions with postsecondary programs. It also provides names and addresses of the regional accrediting associations. Part II identifies accredited or preaccredited professional, technical, occupational, and specialized schools or programs (e.g., in allied health education, architecture, art, Bible college education, business, chiropractic, cosmetology).
