Accreditation is a process which assures the general public that an institution has clearly defined and appropriate objectives and maintains conditions under which their achievement can reasonably be expected. It encourages improvement through continuous self-evaluation and review. It fosters excellence through the development of principles and guidelines for assessing pedagogical effectiveness.


Applicants for Accredited Member status must satisfy IADL assessors, officers and regulatory staff that their organization, products and services comply with the standards required by IADL.

An Accredited Member may acknowledge its IADL membership and display the IADL Logo on its website, prospectus, course-materials, course-completion or graduation certificates, and on other publicity or promotional material. It may use the statement:

"Fully-Accredited Member of the International Association for Distance Learning."

Accredited Members will receive a Certificate of Accredited Membership for the duration of their membership, together with a Letter of Confirmation and Validation.


Please note that universities or degree-granting institutions applying for Accredited Membership must be licensed or approved by national or regional government, or already hold accreditation from a national or international organisation or body recognized by IADL..
