In the process of accreditation of the University participated experts, who assess the effectiveness of learning outcomes. Also accreditation can take part students of higher educational institutions, which are asked to undergo testing to assess the level of knowledge. If the University is not accredited, the Federal service for supervision in education and science can give time to address the deficiencies of the educational process, after which the University will be able to be accredited again.
Accreditation of new specialties or the University as a whole can be carried out only after the first release.

In case of successful passage of the state accreditation the University receives the certificate of state accreditation and annexes. The Application registers a list of accredited educational programs. This document gives the school the right to provide its students with the benefits provided by the state, a delay from an appeal on military service and issue the diploma on higher education of the state sample.

The accreditation level and the status of the University

Today in Russia there are four levels of accreditation of educational institutions:
- I level – College, technical school;
- II level College;
- Third level Institute;
- Level IV – Academy, University.

Universities are educational institutions of III and IV levels. The status of the University depends not only on the level of accreditation, but primarily from the spectrum of the ways in which teaching and research activities.

The Academy is a specialized educational institution training specialists, normally, for the same industry. The University is the University, where specialists from different areas. As a rule, in such institutions with a wide range of specialties. To get the right to be called "Academy" or "University", a school, among other things, should conduct extensive scientific activities and research. To obtain the status of "Institute" schools only need to prepare at least one specialty.

Accreditation of training programs

It is important to understand that accreditation of educational institutions and accreditation of educational programs, things are different. That is why there are cases where the University has the state accreditation, but not all areas, which are trained, accredited. As a result, students in these specialties, can't count on government benefits, deferment of military service, and at release they are issued a diploma.
If you are enrolled in the University for non-accredited training program, according to the law you will not be able to transfer to another school on the accredited specialty.

By law, at the University, passed the state accreditation, not less than 2/3 of the training programmes must be accredited. Read the Certificate of state accreditation and with the App you can in the admissions office of the University.
