Update on the Accreditation Status of Mattia College, Miami, FL

Feb. 24, 2016: Today ACICS took action to suspend accreditation for Mattia College in Miami, Florida. Under ACICS’ standards, the institution has been afforded an opportunity to challenge the suspension before the action becomes final. The other entities with oversight of Mattia College – including the Florida Commission on Independent Education (CIE) and the U.S. Department of Education (ED.Gov) – have been notified of this action.

ACICS’ primary interest is the academic wellbeing of Mattia College students. The timing of the revocation of accreditation, and the ability of Mattia and other parties to establish continuation and completion contingencies for current Mattia students, is under review. The Council’s final decision will be disclosed to the public in a timely manner.

Mattia students, who have questions or require more information, should contact the Florida CIE at 850-245-3200, or e-mail at
