Statement on Accreditation
The School of Sex Therapy is committed to providing a high-quality program, and as such, the Administration, Faculty, and Staff have decided to apply for accreditation from the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC). It is important to note that the DEAC requires an institution to have students enrolled in a program and have been operating for at least 12 months before they will consider accrediting the program. Therefore, once our programs have had students enrolled for 12 months, The School of Sex Therapy intends to apply for DEAC accreditation. Accreditation is a voluntary process that can enhance the credibility and reputation of the institution and its programs, and The School of Sex Therapy is dedicated to meeting the rigorous standards set by the DEAC.
