Accreditation Agencies

International accreditation agencies are important partners as AISA requires that member schools be internationally accredited by an AISA authorised agency.

Schools seeking membership with AISA who are already accredited by an AISA authorised accrediting agency can immediately apply for Full Membership if they meet all the criteria required (click here for details). Schools who are currently seeking accreditation will need to join AISA as Affiliate Members until such time as their accreditation is finalized. The school then has no more than 5 years to complete their accreditation process at which time they will immediately move to Full Membership.

Below is a list of accrediting or authorizing agencies recognized by AISA and their websites:
