What is Accreditation?
In order to ensure a basic level of quality, the practice of accreditation
arose in the United States as a means of conducting non-governmental
peer evaluation of educational institutions and programs. The U.S.
Department of Education does not accredit educational institutions or
programs. The United States has no Federal Ministry of Education or other
centralized authority exercising single national control over postsecondary educational institutions in the country. In general, institutions
of higher education are permitted to operate with considerable
independence and autonomy. American educational institutions can vary
widely in the character and quality of their programs. The reputation of a
university truly depends on the content of curriculum material, reputation
and the quality of its graduates.

Accreditation is optional for all colleges and universities. The goal of

accreditation is to ensure that the education provided by institutions of
higher learning meets acceptable levels of quality. Accrediting agencies,
which are private educational associations of regional or national scope,
develop evaluation criteria, conduct peer evaluations, and assess whether
or not the criteria are met. Institutions and programs that request an
agencys evaluation and meet that agencys criteria are accredited by
that association.
Private educational associations have adopted criteria and procedures for
evaluating institutions to determine whether or not they are operating at
basic levels of quality. This has created a level of stability and similarity

between all schools. For the most part, this only includes secular colleges
and religious schools centered around Christian and Biblical teachings.
Because Metaphysical Sciences is considered a new emerging field of
study by federal and educational agencies, UMS does not qualify for
traditional accreditation that universities like private and state
universities, community colleges, and other secular institutions qualify for.
The traditional accrediting agencies, of which there are nine, have made it
known to UMS that they do not have any other colleges like this one to
compare UMS to, therefore they cannot do an evaluation of us by
comparing us to our peers. Perhaps at a later date in time they will be
able to evaluate us.
The AADP and AAMA were established to meet this need on the part of
those who practice and teach metaphysics. It consists of many
practitioners and schools. The University of Metaphysical Sciences has
met all criteria of the AADP and the AAMA. Upon evaluation, UMS was
granted accreditation by both agencies.

UMS Accreditors
The AADP and the AAMA are the most prominent and related
organizations at this time in the United States for accrediting a
metaphysical institution. These are the only agencies in existence at this
time that are a grouping of our peers. UMS is accredited by the AADP,
American Association of Drugless Practitioners and the AAMA, American
Alternative Medical Association. Please feel free to visit their sites and
check our school listing with them.
