Accreditation and State Licensure

In the United States, federal and state agencies and accreditors set and enforce standards of academic quality and consumer protection. Agencies in other countries impose their own accreditation and education licensure requirements on higher education institutions.

We advise colleges and universities concerning compliance with such requirements. We serve as education regulatory counsel in change of control and other transactions. We assist higher education institutions with requests for substantive changes, including new programs and additional locations. 

And we represent higher education institutions before accreditors, including responding to complaints and compliance reviews; probation, show-cause, and termination proceedings; and developing teach-out plans and agreements.
