International students who want to study English in the USA will find a great variety of quality English language programs in the American Association of Intensive English Programs (AAIEP). Nearly 300 AAIEP members offer intensive English language programs located in university and college settings or city centers across the USA. The English language programs offered by AAIEP members are of the highest quality since all member programs are accredited by ACCET, CEA, or operate under the governance of regionally accredited colleges or universities. For English in the USA, an AAIEP language program is the way to go.
ACCET was founded in 1974 for the purpose of improving continuing education and training and has been officially recognized by the U.S. Department of Education since 1978 as a "reliable authority" as to the quality of education and training provided by the institutions we accredit. In 1998, ACCET became the only recognized accrediting agency to be certified as an ISO 9001:2008-Quality Management System, under the international standards established by the International Organization for Standardization, and continues to hold that unique status.
Accreditation serves the interests of companies, agencies, and the public through the establishment of standards, policies, and procedures in conjunction with an objective third-party professional evaluation designed to identify and inspire sound education and training practices. When such a process is matched by an institution's commitment to high standards and accountability, a partnership for quality becomes reality.
The National ELT (English Language Teaching) Accreditation Scheme (NEAS) is a self-funding, non-profit, industry-based body operating independently of government and of industry ELT centres, but with strong cooperative links with government agencies and industry representative bodies.
