Program Accreditation

The programs offered at Lowell Academy Hairstyling Institute have been accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS) and approved by the U.S. Department of Education. Both accreditation and approval from the Department of Education are necessary for any institution to offer federal financial aid.

What does it mean to be accredited?

Accreditation is a process of validation in which institutions of higher learning are evaluated and a level of expectation is set. Accreditation is a type of quality assurance process under which services and operations of educational institutions or programs are evaluated by an external body to determine if level of standards are met.

Why is it important to attend an accredited school?

Attending an accredited institution is important for several reasons. An accredited school has the ability to offer its students federal financial aid to help pay for your education, while gaining valuable merit towards their personal credit score during the repayment period. Accreditation also means a student has the assurance they are receiving a high quality education while gaining recognition by other schools and employers as to the quality of education they have earned. Accreditation is an affirmation that a school is providing a quality of education that the general public, employers, and the educational community recognizes as satisfying the highest degree of standards. 

All the programs offered at Lowell Academy have been accredited  since 1966.
