Darton College has earned a reaffirmation of its accreditation for another ten years.
Interim President Dr. Paul Jones says it's important for the community, students, and staff.
Without accreditation, students would not be able to receive any kind of federal aid. Accreditation also provides opportunities for growth.
"I think what it also says to our students and to our community is that we meet a level of standards that's important to higher education," said President Jones.
He says now that the accreditation is in hand he will focus on other important issues at the college.
