There is no mandate by federal law for a school, college or university to be accredited. Every Private accredited institution has its own unique standards and there is no national consistency in institutional accreditation. In the united state accreditation is awarded by non-governmental agencies, the United States does not have a federal Ministry of Education or other centralized authority exercising single national control over the postsecondary educational institution in this country.

In order to ensure a basic level of quality, the practice of accreditation rules in the United States has been carryout by private institutions as a means of conducting
non-governmental peer evaluation of educational institutions and programs.
