Accreditation

Cyanna simplifies
the complex accreditation process.

Whether it’s time for initial accreditation, or reaccreditation, Cyanna has the experience to manage the entire process:

Completing applications, revising policies and procedures for compliance, self-evaluation reports and exhibits, institutional effectiveness plans, site visit preparation, team report responses, and more. We can also help to identify which accrediting body is right for your school.

Cyanna® has established relationships with national, regional and programmatic accrediting agencies and has worked on hundreds of accreditation projects. It can be a complex project, but Cyanna® has experienced staff on hand to keep the accreditation process focused, on schedule, and most importantly, compliant.

"Our experience with Cyanna was fantastic. Mark, Jennifer, and Vickey helped our college through a difficult period in our re-accrediting process. Mark and his team were very professional and took the time to listen to our challenges and craft a plan that our administrative staff would complete each week to meet our deadlines. I highly recommend Cyanna!" - Raymond Henderson, President - Myotherapy College of Utah

Who we work with


"Our college has had a great experience with CYANNA and in particular, with David Grimes and Allison Jenkins. David has presented to our faculty, and our faculty has followed up with several excellent faculty development presentations on CYANNA's website that they could use to fulfill compliance with their Annual Faculty Development Plans. In preparation for our accreditation visit with ACCSC last year, CYANNA was instrumental in assisting us with very pertinent presentations that helped us achieve compliance and thus full approval! Thank you, David and Allison, for all you do for faculty, and thus, all you do to help students!" - Beth Wood, Director of Education, The Bradford School
