Accreditation

Stevens-The Institute of Business & Arts is proud to be accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), a private, non-profit, independent accrediting agency recognized by the U. S. Department of Education.

Accreditation assures students that an institution has met the standards of a respected voluntary peer review process. The integrity and honesty of an institution is fundamental and critical to the process, thus accreditation serves as an indication of institutional quality. Accredited schools agree to, and must meet or exceed, the ACCSC Standards of Accreditation. Siba employs professional faculty, offers facilities and equipment to the public designed to meet the educational objectives of the institution, and ensures that the financial and organizational structure of the school has stability and permanence in the educational community.

Since 1965, the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) has been at the forefront of establishing and advancing quality education at postsecondary schools and colleges. To learn more about ACCSC, visit their website at www.accsc.org

Our Faculty
Adjunct Professors

In addition to our highly qualified full-time faculty members, Siba employs several gifted and dedicated adjunct instructors, most of whom work full-time and/or maintain businesses and practices in their respective fields of expertise. 

Military Friendly

It has always been important to us to honor the commitment and courage of our veterans and first responders. As a VA-approved institution, Siba has been working to meet the educational needs of our citizens who have served in the armed forces since the institution was established. We understand the sacrifices our veterans make to ensure our freedoms and are proud to be a Military Friendly School, fully approved for veteran benefits.

We also work to accommodate the needs of students who may be called to duty during their time at Siba. Students will not lose credits because of deployment and, if possible, can pick up where they left off in the curriculum after returning home. We accept transfer credits earned during training, as well as ACE credits. Military students are also exempted from our $25 application fee, our quarterly textbook and campus technology fee, and their graduation fees are included in tuition. Those benefits extend to First Responders and their dependents as well. See our Military Friendly page for more details.
