The U. S. Department of Education (the “Department”) requires that we bring to your attention important information about our accreditor, the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (“ACICS”), and our pursuit of alternative accreditation.

Your ability to use federal student aid to pay for your program with Miami-Jacobs depends on our being accredited by an accrediting agency that is recognized by the Department.  In December 2016 the Department ended its recognition of ACICS and is requiring that we and all other ACICS-accredited schools obtain accreditation from another recognized accreditor by June 12, 2018.

Miami-Jacobs has ceased new enrollments at all of its campuses and has determined not to seek alternative accreditation for any of them.  Miami-Jacobs is continuing to operate and offer its programs and services to enable as many currently enrolled students as possible to complete their programs before June 12, 2018.  Any currently enrolled students who have any concerns that they may not be able to complete their programs by that date should make appointments with the Campus Director to discuss their options.

Any current or prospective student who has a complaint relating to Title IV eligibility or administration, the quality of education received at a Miami-Jacobs school or otherwise relating to the accreditation standards of ACICS can submit that complaint to any of the following channels:
