Independence University's Commitment to Excellence
Attend a nonprofit, accredited university
Why is nonprofit important?
As a nonprofit college, we do not have shareholders, investors, or for profit owners. This means our focus is 100% on our students and their success. Moreover, as a nonprofit college we have the freedom to invest our resources into our students, the quality of our programs, and the student support services critical for online programs.
What does accredited mean?
Independence University's accredited status means the university has met specific standards for curriculum, educational delivery, faculty qualifications, and facilities. Accreditation also means that IU is subjected to ongoing peer review and examination by outside evaluators to ensure a committment to quality education.
Why does it matter?
Accreditation is important because it ensures continued improvement and shows the college's committment to meeting a rigourous set of quality standards. Accreditation is also important because it's a requirement for students to participate in federal financial aid programs which help make college more affordable.
