The U.S. Department of Education announced its decision to withdraw the American Council of Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) recognition as a federally recognized agency in December 2016. A complete list of schools accredited by ACICS is available online. Recent legislation allows the Department of Veterans Affairs to continue paying GI Bill benefits for up to 18 months following the withdrawal of recognition of an accrediting agency while the school seeks alternate accreditation or program approval. The American Legion has service officers in every state who can provide answers to questions about education benefits, federal student loans and credit transferability. Find a service officer near you on the American Legion website.
