Accreditation

Accreditation

Students should be aware that there are multiple types of accreditation and that their intended entry into their chosen profession could be impacted by these differences. For example, institutional accreditation means all students attending Herzing University are attending an accredited institution.

In addition, there are programmatic accreditation bodies which accredit specific programs (as opposed to the institution). Some states require that specific programs, even at regionally accredited institutions like Herzing University, be programmatically accredited as well. The importance of programmatic accreditation can range from a requirement to sit for licensure exams that are mandatory to work in a field to a requirement to sit for a certification exam that is not required for all employment in the field (but may be slightly to strongly preferred by employers, depending on the market) to a symbol of quality with no impact on any certification or licensure (but which may be slightly or strongly preferred by employers, depending on the market). Therefore, Herzing University has not pursued all forms of programmatic accreditation available, as this is a determination on whether the costs and requirements to do so are worth the value to the student in the respective7 marketplaces in the estimation of the University. The student should validate whether the specialized accreditation of a specific program, or lack thereof, is going to fit their career goals for their respective marketplace.

As a result, there is a potential that some states will not permit a student who has completed certain academic programs to become certified, licensed, or sit for a certifying or licensing examination if they graduated from a program that is not programmatically accredited.  Herzing University believes in complete and forthright disclosure for each program we offer, so we clearly identify those programs that are programmatically accredited. If a Herzing University program at a specific campus (or one that is offered online) does not state it has programmatic accreditation in writing, students should assume the program does not have programmatic accreditation. Students should not rely on oral or unofficial confirmation of programmatic accreditation. Students are responsible for understanding the specific requirements for certification, licensing, and for eligibility to sit for a particular licensing examination of the state or locale in which they want to enter or practice their profession. Herzing University makes no representation, unless explicitly written, that students graduating in a particular program qualify for certification, licensing, or eligibility to sit for a licensing examination in a particular state. For further clarification, students should review the specialized program accreditation/approvals stated in the catalog and read and sign the Accreditation Disclosure for their respective campus.

Institutional Accreditation

Herzing University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, 230 South Lasalle Street, Suite 7-500, Chicago, Illinois, 60614-1413, www.ncahlc.org, (800) 621-7400.

Herzing University has received specialized accreditation for its business programs through the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) located at 11374 Strang Line Road in Lenexa, Kansas, USA. The business programs in the following degrees are accredited by the IACBE:

  • Master of Business Administration

Specialized Program Accreditations, Certifications, and Licensures by Campus

Herzing University also holds programmatic accreditations or approvals for selected programs at selected locations. Not all programs require specialized programmatic accreditation, and some new programs must be in operation for a period of time before specialized accreditation can be obtained. Specialized programmatic accreditation may be required for graduates to be eligible to take some licensure or certification examinations. Unless this catalog specifically and unequivocally states that a particular program at a particular campus (including the Online Campus) is programmatically accredited and qualifies a student for licensing, certification, or to be eligible to sit for a licensing examination, students should conclude the program offered on the campus they are enrolled at is not programmatically accredited. Students should independently investigate the specific licensing requirements for their program in the specific state or locale for which they anticipate seeking employment.

Accounting: The Bachelor of Science in Accounting program at Herzing University, even when combined with the Herzing University MBA, may not fulfill all of the requirements for a graduate to take the certified public accountant (CPA) exam or apply for licensure as a CPA in some states/jurisdictions. In addition to requiring a specific amount of study beyond a bachelor’s degree (typically, a total of 150 semester credit hours, but this varies by jurisdiction), most states/jurisdictions require specific coursework, as well as several years of professional experience working in accounting, to be eligible to apply for licensure. Some states (including, but not necessarily limited to, Texas) require the accounting program to have a specific programmatic accreditation for graduates to apply for licensure as a CPA, which Herzing University programs do not have, and no representation has been made as to when or if such an accreditation will be obtained. Applicants interested in becoming a CPA should check with their state board of accountancy regarding CPA eligibility requirements prior to enrolling in any accounting program. Students planning to pursue certifications other than the CPA exam should also contact the respective certifying organization to confirm requirements for certification prior to enrolling in any accounting program.
  4. Other Programs: No other programs at this campus have specialized programmatic accreditation. Students are advised to consult with employers of preference as to the importance of specialized programmatic accreditation on their hiring decisions.

State Approvals

Herzing University is authorized to offer undergraduate educational programs in the various states in which it operates by the following state boards, commissions, and departments. Not all programs are available in all states. Students should not confuse permission for Herzing University to operate in a state or educate students from a particular state online with special or programmatic approvals that may be required or preferred to work in a given field in some states. Students should independently investigate and ensure that the program they desire is offered on the campus they intend to enroll in via the desired format and with the potential outcome they desire. Students should rely only on the written information provided in the academic catalog and not on oral or unofficial representations or other documents. The fact that a program is currently offered on a campus does not ensure, nor does Herzing University guarantee, that all courses will always be available on that campus in the specific format the student selected; however, a student will always be provided with a path to completion, despite the potential change in format of course offerings.

Frequently Asked Questions by International Students

Is Herzing University the right university for me or my student?

We believe that Herzing University is right for you or your student, and we’re excited to welcome you into the Herzing University family. Herzing University advantages include:

  • Accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association (www.ncahlc.org); in the United States, regional accreditation is a prestigious institutional accreditation that is awarded to universities that abide by stringent guidelines
  • Programmatic accreditation in various specific degree programs
  • High-quality degree programs providing knowledge and skills that employers want
  • Simple, facilitated admissions process with notification of admission decision within 7 days
  • Step-by-step assistance with the U.S. education visa application process and requirements
  • Personalized attention and individualized support from Herzing University leadership, faculty, and staff
  • Cultural support and one-on-one assistance from a Herzing University international student ambassador
  • Practical, hands-on learning through Optional Practical Training [OPT] internships
  • Accelerated degree programs: earn a Bachelor’s degree in just 3 years or a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in 4 years
  • 11 campus locations and complete online programs
  • Recognized by U.S. News & World Report—a news publisher known for its authoritative educational rankings—in 2014 as one of the “Best Online Bachelor’s Programs” in the U.S.

Is it expensive to attend Herzing University?

No. When evaluating universities and colleges in the U.S., it is important to review the tuition structure. In the U.S., in-state tuition is the best available tuition rate. This is the tuition that a U.S. citizen residing in a given state pays to attend universities located in that state.

Herzing University’s tuition is very competitive and compares favorably to U.S. in-state tuition rates. This often makes Herzing University’s competitive tuition rate even more affordable than universities offering scholarships. And our tuition for international students is the same as our tuition for U.S. students; most U.S. universities charge much higher tuition rates for their international students.

Besides tuition, what other costs must I consider?

You’ll need to consider housing costs and personal expenses such as health insurance, a laptop computer, food, clothing, travel and transportation, mobile phone, entertainment, etc. These costs will vary by individual.

And while most U.S. universities have a two semester academic year, Herzing has a three semester academic year. So if you’d like to accelerate your Bachelor’s degree completion to save a year of U.S. living expenses, you can earn your undergraduate degree in three years instead of four.

Or if you prefer, to help you take maximum advantage of your available study time in the U.S. while minimizing costs, Herzing also offers an accelerated program where you can earn both a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in four years total. You can also earn a Master’s degree only in as few as 16 months.

What is the annual cost to live in the U.S.?

Herzing University estimates that the annual cost is:

Housing $3,600 – $6,200
Food $2,400 – $3,600
Transportation $600 – $1,200
Health Insurance $500 – $1,000
Other Expenses $2,400 – $3,000
Estimated Annual Total $9,500 – $15,000

Note: the average cost of international airfare to a Herzing University U.S. campus is $700 – $1,200.

Is a U.S. visa difficult to obtain?

If you follow the established process, obtaining an F-1 student visa is not as difficult as you might think. And at Herzing University, we’re here to assist every step of the way. The vast majority of our qualified international students receive an F-1 student visa.

The staff at Herzing University is very familiar with the U.S. government F-1 visa process. We meet regularly with the consular officers. They know us personally and recognize that our students are high-quality, qualified F-1 applicants.

We assist our students in critical areas of the visa process such as demonstrating the intent to return to a home country upon study completion; the ability to finance school, transportation, and living expenses; and English language capability at a sufficiently high level for student success.For complete details, please refer to the visa instructions in your packet.

Do you have dormitories?

No. We have considered it, but our students overwhelmingly prefer apartments (flats). Apartments are nicer, larger, less expensive, and allow students to cook their own food. Apartments also provide a more authentic American living experience than dormitories do. Additionally, apartments are a nicer place to live during American holidays when students vacate the dormitories.

What kind of support system is available to me as a student?

Herzing University offers broad support in a wide variety of areas including academic and student services, housing, transportation, and medical and insurance support.

Additionally, once international students are accepted for enrollment—even prior to arrival in the U.S.—they are paired with a Herzing University on-campus, international student ambassador. The student ambassador is a knowledgeable, accessible Herzing University person who will provide one-on-one assistance with any questions, concerns, or needs you might have. The ambassador is just a call, text, or email away, from the time you are accepted at Herzing University to the moment you graduate. So you’ll have peace of mind, and so will your family back home.

How do I decide which Herzing University campus is right for me?

All Herzing University campuses have the same credentials for academic excellence, so you should choose a campus that offers the program you want to study and fits your preferences for lifestyle, geographic location, and climate. Our Herzing University advisors will work closely with you to help find the campus that is just right for you.

Is Herzing University’s smaller campus size right for me?

Yes, if you are looking for a more personal educational experience. Herzing University’s supportive, personalized approach to education ensures that all Herzing University students have access to the tools and assistance they need to maximize their educational and career success. We pride ourselves on this approach. Herzing University’s leadership, faculty, and staff will get to know you as an individual. This is very different from the experience at a large state university where you may feel like you are just a number. At Herzing University, you will feel like a valued member of our learning community; many students say they feel like they are part of a family at Herzing.

How do I get health insurance in the U.S.?

Herzing University coordinates with leading U.S. health insurance providers. A variety of plans are available for students to purchase, and the plans cover most major medical expenses after any deductible or co-payment requirements have been met. We recommend that you review the available plans in detail to ensure that you select the best plan for your individual health situation.
