Broadview Entertainment Arts University (BEAU) is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to award bachelor of fine arts and associate of applied science degrees. Receiving this accreditation requires a strong commitment to educational quality. To maintain ACICS accreditation, BEAU voluntarily commits to continuous improvement and accountability; periodic peer review; and meeting or exceeding educational quality criteria established by ACICS.
BEAU’s ACICS accreditation means we have standards in place to assess the education we’re offering you and that we’re committed to providing a quality educational experience. It tells your future employers that you earned a degree from an institution that’s recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, which may be a requirement for employment. BEAU’s accreditation also means we’re eligible for federal loan and grant programs that provide financial aid to qualified students.
ACICS is the largest national accrediting organization of degree-granting institutions. Founded in 1912, ACICS accredits institutions that offer programs in professional, technical and occupational fields. ACICS is one of two national accreditors recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). ACICS has examined BEAU’s programs and found they meet or exceed the Council’s curriculum standards. That means you can be assured BEAU has met standards to demonstrate consistency in institutional operations, is committed to institutional improvement, and conforms to rules for public accountability.

The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Universities (ACICS) accredits Broadview University. Earlier this year, the US Department of Education (USDE) made the decision to no longer recognize ACICS as an accreditor, which may have an adverse impact on our students’ ability to participate in federal student financial aid. ACICS is currently appealing this decision and, on March 31, 2017, ACICS filed a motion for summary judgement in U.S. District Court. Broadview University has 18 months (until June 12, 2018) from the time ACICS lost recognition by USDE to obtain a new accrediting body, otherwise our institution will no longer be eligible to receive funds under Title IV, HEA programs (federal student financial aid). Even though ACICS is appealing the decision, Broadview University started the necessary steps to obtain accreditation through another agency and is currently considered “in process,” to move forward with the process.
Please know that Broadview University is taking this process seriously and representatives are available to answer any questions you have.
