American Association for Higher Education & Accreditation, Inc

(Formerly AAHE), is the oldest association in the United States dedicated to the advancement of higher education.

Headquarters: Washington, D.C. 20036 (202) 293-6440

NOTE: We have had a couple of people over the last few years, people who are attempting to spread untruths and who have personal agendas, such as a bitter former board member, a competitor and a blogger who is a friend of the competitor who is looking to make a reputation for himself, say that the organization went bankrupt, closed and went out of business or what have you in 2005. Of course they provide only lip service. This could not be further from the truth as this is the same organization, corporation, non-profit 501-C3 federal tax exempt number and all. The only changes were the people at the top who were only interested in taking home fat pay checks like the $250,000 being paid to the president at the time to save the organization.

Now for the past 3 years no salaries have been paid, that's right not a single dime in payroll. Now it is a work of love, by a group of 18 very dedicated, highly educated people. These very dedicated people care passionately about one thing and that is to have AAHEA the primary source of information on education and accreditation and the number one organization of its kind in the world with the ability to do accreditation across the board and all while enjoying an impeccable reputation for all non-profits to follow.

We invite you to join with us and our thousands of dedicated colleges, universities and their staff, our members, and this prestigious 140-year-old organization, join and become a voting member, have a voice, as you see here, you too can make a difference!

AAHEA is "an independent, membership-based, non-profit organization dedicated to building human capital for higher education." It is "the source of choice for information about higher education on issues that matter in a democratic multi-racial society; and AAHEA promotes and disseminates examples of effective educational practice to address those issues." Assessment is just one way that AAHEA achieves these aims of providing valuable information to impact change in higher education. Membership is available at several levels and time periods.

The main focus of AAHEA is providing accreditation to all legitimate educational organizations. The criterion needed is available on the AAHEA website. Each year AAHEA holds a convention.


As one of the leading organizations in accreditation, AAHEA requires all members who seek accreditation to perform self-assessment especially in the following areas:

  1. Student retention
  2. Student graduation/ Completion of program of study
  3. Student placement in the field, or use of study
  4. Employer/Customer satisfaction with students in the work environment
  5. Student assessment of their own learning expectations and outcomes
  6. Instructor satisfaction with the inner workings of the institution
