Staff Report to the Senior Department Official on Recognition Compliance Issues. Recommendation Page: Association of Advanced Rabbinical and Talmudic Schools
US Department of Education
The Association of Advanced Rabbinical and Talmudic Schools, Accreditation Commission (AARTS) accredits advanced rabbinical and Talmudic institutions that grant postsecondary degrees such as the baccalaureate, master's, doctorate, first rabbinic, and first Talmudic degrees. AARTS-accredited schools offer a program of Talmud and related studies. ("Talmud" is the collection of Rabbinic writings that date back to the third century whose writings form the basis of religious authority for traditional Judaism.) The enrollment at AARTS-accredited institutions, with the exception of a few larger schools, is approximately 100 students. Of the 63 institutions currently accredited by the Commission, 38 are located within the New York metropolitan area. Nationwide, AARTS schools are located in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. All of the agency's accredited schools rely on the Commission's continued recognition by the U.S. Department of Education for access to Title IV, HEA programs. This paper presents the recommendations of the staff of the National Advisory Committee on Institutional Quality and Integrity (NACIQI) concerning AARTS's petition for continued recognition.
