Laurus College Nationally Accredited

Laurus College affirmed of National Accreditation status!

Laurus College has once again been affirmed in their accreditation status by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).  During a recent visit ACICS, a national accreditation body recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education, conducted an extensive review of Laurus College’s programs, teaching methods and operational capabilities.  The results of the evaluation demonstrated the commitment of Laurus College to meeting the high standards set forth by ACICS for post-secondary institutions.

“With quality being such an important part of our mission statement, it is incredibly gratifying to have a recognized outside presence like ACICS acknowledge our success in meeting our goals.” Says James E. Redmond, Chief Executive Officer at Laurus College.  “The most important outcome however for Laurus College continues to be the day-to-day appreciation we receive from our students.  It is their success in the classroom and then in their careers that truly affirm the value of the education we provide.”

Laurus College, now celebrating their eighth year of operation in the state of California, has been offering post-secondary, collegiate-level courses at its various Central Coast campuses since 2006.  In 2011, Laurus College expanded their operations with a new campus in Oxnard and more recently made all of their programs available online to California residents.

Cecilia Mortela, Vice-President of Student Programs at Laurus College, spoke to the challenge of staying true to both their own internal and the accrediting body’s standards while growing as an organization. “During these years of expansion, our number one priority is to continue providing a high level of personalized caring and quality education to all of our students.  Fortunately, our interactive learning platform allows us to leverage our most valuable resources, our teachers, so that students at all of our campuses and online receive the same quality experience.”

The mission of Laurus College is “to serve as a quality institution of higher education dedicated to creating a quality experience for all of its students by combining career focused programs and the necessary fundamentals of learning that supply the tools needed to succeed in the 21st century.”
