Accreditation by a regional accreditor is not an absolute requirement for all colleges and universities but, in many cases, it is necessary for an educational institution to survive. For example, Title IV funding is available only for students attending regionally accredited colleges and universities, and the CFP Board only recognizes CFP educational curricula at regionally accredited colleges and universities. The regional accreditor for The American College is the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
