Approvals & Accreditation
SOLEX College is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to award occupational associate's degrees and certificates. ACICS lost its recognition by the United States Department of Education on December 12, 2016, and is presently in progress of challenging this decision. SOLEX College is currently in process of considering the options for the institutional accreditation with the accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
