Federal Government: The federal government requires institutions to be acknowledged by the U.S. Department of Education or accredited by an agency recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) in order to participate in federal financial aid programs.

State Licensing Boards: Accreditation of a university or its programs may determine eligibility for graduates to apply for professional licensure in a state.
