As an accredited institution of higher education by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), The College prides itself on upholding the highest standards.

Statement on Accreditation

Since 1978, The American College of Financial Services has been accredited by MSCHE, an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). It’s a voluntary, non-governmental, membership-based association that defines, maintains, and promotes educational excellence across institutions with diverse missions, student populations, and resources.

MSCHE examines each institution as a whole, rather than specific programs within institutions, assuring students and the public of the quality of higher education. Its accreditation process ensures institutional accountability, self-appraisal, improvement, and innovation through peer review and the rigorous application of standards within the context of institutional missions.
