Important Notice on Stevens-Henager College Accreditation
Change in status of accreditation and what it means2
Stevens-Henager College (“SHC”), operated by Center for Excellence in Higher Education (“CEHE”) is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (“ACCSC”). In 2018, ACCSC placed CEHE’s colleges on probation1 due to concerns over adherence to portions of ACCSC’s Standards, including that some programs at CEHE’s colleges had not consistently met the annual ACCSC cohort benchmark graduation rates.
During the period of probation, CEHE believes that it has satisfactorily addressed the items listed in the ACCSC probation - including implementing several strategies that have significantly improved current cohort graduation rates to a level that is forecasted to meet the ACCSC benchmarks for all programs. However, recently CEHE received notice that ACCSC has voted to withdraw accreditation for some of CEHE’s colleges, including SHC.
Immediately upon receipt of the notice, CEHE filed a Notice of Intent to Appeal with ACCSC. It is important to note that under ACCSC rules, a college’s accreditation remains in place during the entirety of the appeals process. Additionally, CEHE made the prudent and right decision to cancel the upcoming start scheduled for May 10, 2021. SHC remains accredited as CEHE moves through the appeals process with ACCSC. CEHE believes it is important to be transparent with its students, faculty and staff and that keeping you informed is the right thing to do. Accordingly, as this situation develops, we will continue to update you and provide any new information as it becomes available.
- Since the probation began, CEHE provided prospective students with a notice of the ACCSC probation prior to the student’s enrollment into one of CEHE colleges.
- The accreditation status change mentioned above as well as resulting actions by CEHE also apply to the affiliate school, Stevens-Henager College
