Dear Member Institutions: In preparing for the enduring demand for quality career education, 2013 represented significant opportunities and substantial achievements for ACICS and its member institutions. Not every milestone will be greeted with great fanfare, but assembling a solid foundation for the future requires the placement of one brick at time, thoughtfully and with great care. The Council established new higher benchmarks for student achievement in 2013, building on solid quality assurance enhancements made in 2012. Member institutions responded to the stronger standards by accessing more knowledge regarding best practices, paring back marginal programs and reconfiguring operations so that every campus is more tightly conscribed around quality and performance. No one understands the strong expectations of quality and performance better than our colleges and schools. They also appreciate that while the expectations can be vexing, the struggle toward defensible quality is honorable, and that those engaged in the struggle are noble, professional and competent. The foundation of quality serves ACICS well as it grows its international presence and impact. Once again in 2013, a number of international institutions sought accreditation from ACICS. While these institutions are authorized and recognized in their own countries, they seek ACICS accreditation because they want to improve their overall quality and be recognized globally, especially in the U.S. As ACICS moves forward globally, it will continue to develop and revise standards to reflect the variations between nations. It will work to establish expectations that transcend individual government requirements. As the quality assurance enterprise of ACICS and its multi-national community of institutions continue to grow in the second year of its second Century, members can take comfort in the solid foundation of performance, accountability and transparency. Those strengths serve us well. Brian Stewart Chairman, Board of Directors

IMPACTING PACTING EDUCATION QUALITY Expansion by ACICS of its international accreditation enterprise accelerated in 2013, driven in part by two unrelenting forces: demand for applied, career-focused post-secondary education in industrialized as well as developing nations; and hunger for quality assurance that is based on the standards and traditions of post-secondary education in the U.S. For many reasons and by many measures, ACICS colleges and schools are serving students in a meaningful and valuable manner. The world is paying attention. In response to that demand, ACICS now provides quality assurance to colleges and schools in Central America, Africa, Southeast Asia and Scandinavia, as well as in Western Europe, Canada and the Caribbean. Students in 12 international countries now benefit from the expectations of quality and integrity applied by evaluation teams mustered by ACICS. The expansion of ACICS international operations has prompted a review of some policies and practices to better accommodate the diverse and competing requirements of other nations. Those revisions will produce subtle but material changes to standards that are more applicable and defensible on an international basis, while preserving the expectations of quality and integrity manifest in the U.S. system of higher education.

ACICS completed the five-year cycle of re-recognition in 2013. It received formal extension of its authority from the U.S. Department of Education. Coupled with the reaffirmation by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) in 2012, ACICS’s policies, practices, capacity and performance as a reliable authority on institutional quality and integrity have been rigorously tested – and affirmed – by two independent recognition entities. Member institutions were directly impacted by the cycle of accountability. The Council harnessed re-recognition to strengthen its quality assurance enterprise through higher standards, stronger reliability of performance data and greater transparency. New student achievement standards established in 2012 were enhanced and applied to the 2013 Campus Accountability Report data. The higher expectations of retention, placement and licensure exam pass rates reflect the Council’s sustained focus on ensuring that students attending member institutions achieve academically, experientially and economically through the term of enrollment and beyond. Accountability alone is necessary and expected. However, when accountability is linked to thoughtful, rigorous quality review, the value to students – and the institution – rises to a higher level.



National College Grad Publishes in Medical Journal Tim Hansberger, a certified surgical technologist (CST) and graduate of National contributed the article, “Treating Glioblastoma Multiforme,” to The Surgical Technologist journal. He chose the topic for his capstone project because his mother succumbed to the disease. The article explained how the medical team treated the disease. Hansberger hopes the information may help others who are victims of the same type of cancer. Formerly,

Community Service Transcends Borders Students from Humacao Community College of Puerto Rico were recognized by the global organization “Enactus” for their excellence in community service. Their project, “Up from the Bottom,” involves helping small businesses to develop, poor countries and schools to comply with students' academic achievements, and municipal projects aimed at protecting the environment. The HCC project was selected among many from other universities 6

in Puerto Rico. HCC students traveled to Mexico to receive the recognition where hundreds of students from throughout the world presented their community projects in a global competition. Students of HCC served as ambassadors of the island, presenting Puerto Rican culture and traditions to thousands of international students and industry leaders.

Hansberger was a volunteer firefighter and emergency medical technician (EMT). When his wife became ill, he decided to pursue a position in the medical field. One of his favorite classes, Anatomy and Physiology, was taught by Mary Alice Tutwiler and Karen Sherback. “Karen was the one who really encouraged me to [write] the article,” he said. “She gave me instructions on how to improve it.”

‘NewSchool’ Design Students Win First Place A team of NewSchool of Architecture and Design students won first place at the Sukkah Design Expo 2013 for their design of a temporary structure called a sukkah that commemorates the agricultural harvest and has significant meaning for the Jewish community. The event was sponsored by the Leichtag Foundation as part of events marking the Jewish Sukkot harvest festival tradition in September. Students designed and built the project as part of a summer studio class at NSAD led by Instructor Chuck Crawford. The student team included Gwynn Beasley, Nour Kassam, Trang Nguyen, Thomas Quaas and Jessica Vences. The NSAD student team received a $1,800 cash prize for their winning entry, which was chosen through a public vote.


OPPORTUNITIES TO SHAPE THOUGHT The phenomenon of underemployment continues to vex the nation’s economic recovery. Each week new perspectives are offered about the plight of young adults who have recently entered the workforce and struggled to access employment opportunity commensurate with their aspirations, abilities and needs. In 2013 ACICS and the National Journal utilized the context of underemployment for a policy discussion on workforce development and the role of effective post-secondary education in closing the skills – and employment – gap. The underlying research, commissioned by ACICS, complemented the research project of 2012, “Workforce Skills Reality Check.” Both research projects have been shared with policy audiences across the country during the last two years. The summary findings and authoritative sources are available through . ACICS also developed and shared with policy makers its recommendations regarding the role of accreditation and opportunities for enhancements during the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. Whitepapers exploring a myriad of accreditation issues from a policy perspective are also available at .




One the eve of the reauthorization the federal Higher Education Act, ACICS reached out to key policy makers and those who influence policy to participate in dialogue with member institutions. Representatives of more than 200 ACICS member colleges and schools were present during the 2013 Conference and Annual Meeting in Jacksonville when U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx, chair of the House Higher Education Subcommittee, presented her perspectives and insights. The policy focus on accreditation and quality assurance is pronounced and sustained in the current environment. The scrutiny is applied to regional and national accrediting organizations, reflecting a broad review of the effectiveness and affordability of the entire higher education community. Conferees also had access to substantive workshops on a variety of topics related to quality and integrity, including Institutional Effectiveness, Retention and Placement, Learning Outcomes, Recruitment and Admissions, Placement Verification and Consumer Disclosures.





Strength through Activity, Renewal 14

By the Numbers The 960+ colleges and schools accredited by ACICS are part of a dynamic, energetic sector that is constantly reinvent-

ing itself to better meet the needs of post-secondary students and their subsequent employers. The creativity, inventiveness and agility of the education providers create challenges and opportunities for the accreditation provider. In 2013, ACICS rose to those challenges by becoming more active than ever in reviewing the educational activities and substantive changes of colleges and schools. Summarized on the tables below are some of the key numeric indicators of the breadth and depth of the ACICS enterprise in 2013. The frenetic pace of operations requires sufficient resources and capacity to deliver consistently on the promise of quality. The tables also summarize some of the milestones reached in 2013 in collaboration with ACICS’s partners in quality: member colleges and schools.

Financial Statements and Independent Auditor’s Report June 30, 2013


INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT Board of Directors Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS

STOKES & COMPANY, P.C. 1201 15TH STREET. NW SUITE 340 WASHINGTON, D.C. 20005-2842 (202) 293-9000 FAX (202) 293-9666 WWW.STOKESPC.COM



We have audited the accompanying financial statements the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), which comprise the balance sheet as of June 30, 2013, and the related statements of activities and cash flows for the year then ended, and the related notes to the financial statements. Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditor’s Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. The prior year summarized comparative balance sheet has been derived from ACICS’ 2012 balance sheet and, in our report dated November 26, 2012; we expressed an unqualified opinion on those financial statements. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made my management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools as of June 30, 2013, and the change in its net assets and its cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES Basis of presentation Financial statement presentation follows accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America in relation to net asset classification. The organization is required to report information regarding its financial position and activities according to three classes of net assets: unrestricted net assets, temporarily restricted net assets, and permanently restricted net assets. There are no temporarily or permanently restricted net assets at June 30, 2013. Cash and cash equivalents ACICS considers all short-term, highly liquid investments with initial maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Since all such cash equivalents are contained in its investment portfolio and are not used in current operations, they are reported as investments. Investments ACICS invests in a professionally managed portfolio. All investments are carried at fair value. Such investments are exposed to various risks such as market and credit. Due to the level of risk associated with such investments, and the level of uncertainty related to changes in the value of such investments, it is at least reasonably possible that changes in risk in the near term could materially affect investment balances and the amounts reported in the financial statements. Realized and unrealized gains and losses are reported as investment income in the statement of activities and changes in net assets. Property and equipment Property and equipment are recorded at cost. All acquisitions in excess of $1,000 are capitalized. Depreciation is provided on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Artwork is not considered a collection and is a non depreciable asset. Property and equipment are reviewed for impairment whenever changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The cost of property and equipment retired or disposed of is removed from the accounts along with the related accumulated depreciation, and any gain or loss is reflected in income. Revenue recognition Sustaining fees are recognized in the year to which they apply. Sustaining fees received in advance are recorded as deferred revenue and are recognized in subsequent periods when they are earned. User fees are charged to cover the administrative costs of processing forms and are recognized when the forms have been processed. ACICS utilizes fixed fee and geographical discount schedules to determine visit billings. Accounts receivable includes program related revenue that has not been received as of June 30, 2013. No interest is accrued on receivables. Accounts receivable are stated at unpaid balances, less an allowance for doubtful accounts. At June 30, 2013, the allowance for doubtful accounts amounted to $58,789. ACICS provides for losses on accounts receivable using the allowance method. The allowance is based on experience. Receivables are considered impaired if full principal payments are not received in accordance with the contractual terms. It is ACICS’ policy to charge off uncollectible accounts receivable when management determines the receivable will not be collected. Substantially all receivables are derived from institutions that ACICS accredits. All receivables to these institutions are made on an unsecured basis. Historically, ACICS has not incurred significant credit related losses.


ACCREDITING COUNCIL FOR INDEPENDENT COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS Notes to Financial Statements (continued) June 30, 2013 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued) Functional allocation of expenses The costs of providing programs and other activities have been summarized on a functional basis in the statement of activities and changes in net assets. Accordingly, certain costs have been allocated among the programs and supporting services benefited. Use of estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Fair value measurement Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America provide a common definition of fair value, establish a framework for measure of fair value and expand disclosures about fair value measurements, but do not require any new fair value measurements. All assets and liabilities required to be measured at fair value by these accounting principles have been assessed with the following three-tier hierarchy of inputs: Level 1 – quoted prices in active markets for identical instruments Level 2 – other significant observable inputs Level 3 – significant unobservable inputs All assets and liabilities are considered Level 1. Financial information as of June 30, 2012 The financial information as of June 30, 2012 is presented for balance sheet comparative purposes only and is not intended to represent complete financial statement presentation. Certain accounts in the prior financial statements have been reclassified for comparative purposes to conform to the presentation in the current period. Advertising costs ACICS expenses advertising costs as they are incurred.


ACCREDITING COUNCIL FOR INDEPENDENT COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS Notes to Financial Statements (continued) June 30, 2013 ORGANIZATION AND TAX STATUS The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) was founded in 1912 to establish and advance the quality of education of independent, non-public career schools, career institutions, and colleges. ACICS accomplishes these objectives by performing the accreditation function for its members. ACICS is exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code as an organization that is not a private foundation. ACICS is, however, subject to income tax on any net profits generated by unrelated business activities as defined under the tax laws. To date, ACICS has not engaged in such activities. Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America require that uncertain tax positions be evaluated and the potential impact of unfavorable outcome of a tax authority's assessment of such uncertain tax position be reflected in the financial statements. From time to time, management must assess the need to accrue or disclose a possible loss contingency for proposed adjustments from various federal and state tax authorities who may audit the organization in the normal course of business. ACICS has evaluated its tax reporting and has not reflected any contingent liability for any such potential assessment. In the event there were any proposed adjustments any associated penalties and interest would be separately reported. The organization is no longer subject to examinations by relevant tax authorities for years prior to fiscal year ended June 30, 2010.

CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK ACICS maintains its cash balances at one financial institution in the Washington, D.C. area. The balances are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) up to $250,000. At June 30, 2013, the uninsured balance for all cash accounts was $1,119,805. The Association has never experienced a loss on its cash deposits. ACICS maintains its investments at one financial institution in the Washington, D.C. area. The cash equivalents and certificates of deposit held at this institution are insured by the FDIC up to $250,000. At June 30, 2013, the uninsured balance for these cash equivalents and certificates of deposit was $79,014. All other investments held in this institution are insured by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) for up to $500,000. At June 30, 2013, the uninsured balance for these investments was $11,293,495.

PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT Property and equipment as of June 30, 2013 consists of the following: Furniture and fixtures Leasehold improvements Artwork

$ 5,271,269 679,088 4,006 5, 954,363

Less accumulated depreciation and amortization

(3,942,919) $ 2,011,444

COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES Operating leases ACICS leases office space in Washington, D.C., which has a term that expires September 30, 2017. Minimum monthly rent is currently $57,582. The total of all rental payments due under the lease are being recognized on a straight-line basis in the statement of activities and changes in net assets. Accordingly, there is a liability recorded for accrued rent equal to the difference between the rent expense and the actual cash payments required by the lease. ACICS also leases equipment under operating leases. The copiers have leases that expire in March and September of 2014. The monthly lease payments are $3,268 and $1,411. The postage machine lease expired November 21, 2011 and an agreement was reached to continue on a quarterly payment plan equal to $2,100. A new agreement is being negotiated. The following is a schedule of future minimum lease payments as of June 30, 2013: 2014








183,344 $





The total expense incurred under all operating leases during the year ended June 30, 2013 was $811,961.

ACCREDITING COUNCIL FOR INDEPENDENT COLLEGES AND SCHOOLS Notes to Financial Statements (continued) June 30, 2013 COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES (continued) Contractual ACICS has contracted various consultants and insurance providers. ACICS is obligated to pay fees for these relationships. ACICS has an employment contract with its executive director. Should the executive director be dismissed, ACICS may be subject to severance payments.

PENSION PLANS ACICS has a defined contribution pension plan, ACICS retirement/savings plan, as regulated by the Internal Revenue Service Code 401(a). Employees become eligible after one year of service, and become 25% vested for every year of employment. Contributions to the plan are discretionary and ACICS contributed 10% of eligible employees’ salaries. $317,655 was contributed for the year ended June 30, 2013. ACICS's employees are also eligible to participate in a 403(b) tax deferred annuity plan through which they can defer a portion of their annual salary. These voluntary contributions immediately vest to the employees.

ACCREDITATION AUTHORITY The Secretary of the United States Department of Education has extended the recognition of ACICS as an accrediting body through July 2016. ACICS must reaffirm this authority every five years. Management believes it is highly probably that ACICS will continue to be recognized as an accrediting body for an indefinite period.

SUBSEQUENT EVENTS In preparing these financial statements, management of ACICS has evaluated events and transactions that occurred after June 30, 2013 for potential recognition or disclosure in the financial statements. These events and transactions have been evaluated through November 21, 2013. This is the date that the financial statements were available to be issued.
