LDS Business College is accredited by the Northwest commission on Colleges and Universities
Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality evaluated through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.
Accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
Inquiries regarding an institution’s accredited status by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:

Accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities refers to the institution as a whole. Therefore, statements like “fully accredited” or “this program is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities” or “this degree is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities” are incorrect and should not be used.
Medical Assistant Accreditation
Program Accreditation: The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) accredits the Medical Assistant Certificate at LDS Business College upon the recommendation of the Medical Assisting Education Review Board (MAERB). (Students who complete the AAS - Executive Medical Assistant degree automatically receive the CAAHEP-accredited certificate as well, due their overlapping requirements.) The program has been placed on Probationary Accreditation as of January 2015. This temporary probationary period does not limit students' access to the CMA or RMA certification exams, nor does it affect the regional accreditation of the College as a whole.
