AROQA also offers institutional accreditation. Institutional accreditation reviews entire colleges and universities. Specialized agencies award accreditation for academic units in particular fields of study. The institutional accreditation assesses not just degree programs, but also all the activities and subunits of the institution, including research and community outreach. Institutions, therefore, must demonstrate high general quality in all dimensions of their activities. AROQA's institutional accreditation will be awarded to institutions that demonstrate their commitment to quality and continuous improvement as assessed by our rigorous and comprehensive peer review. AROQA accreditation ensures that higher education institutions possess the following general qualities:

  • Curricula that is current, relevant and in accordance with international standards
  • High-caliber teaching and learning processes
  • Graduates who have achieved specified learning goals
  • Resources necessary to achieve the objectives set and used according to their designated purpose
