INITIAL (formerly called provisional) accreditation is not punitive and is simply the terminology given to newly accredited programs for their first five years. Initial accreditation means the program is officially accredited. Initial accreditation does not mean programs are at a higher risk of losing accreditation or that they are “less” accredited. Graduates of an Initially accredited program are considered graduates of an AVMA CVTEA accredited program and would be eligible in nearly all states to take the Veterinary Technician National Exam.
The City College Altamonte Springs Nursing Education Program is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.

City College is authorized under State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (“SARA”). Colleges and universities that are SARA members may provide online education to residents of SARA member states.
SARA pertains to approval of distance education courses and programs offered across state lines by postsecondary institutions that already have degree authorization in at least one state. SARA centralizes the authorization process for each institution in a single state called the institution’s “home state.” Colleges or universities in a SARA state therefore only need their home state authorization to offer distance education to students in any other SARA member state, subject to certain limitations. Currently California, Guam and American Samoa are not part of SARA and students residing in these states/territories will not be eligible to apply for our courses/programs.
City College admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the institution. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other institutionally administered programs.
