(Tempe AZ - December 7, 2015)

Sessions College for Professional Design (, the online pioneer in design education, has been re-accredited by its national and regional accreditors for another five years, through 2020.

Sessions College was first accredited in 2001 by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission. In 2006, the school was granted a secondary accreditation with the Middle States Commission on Secondary Schools. In the nearly 20 years since its establishment in 1997, many things at "Sessions" have changed. Once a little boutique New York school, the school is now an Arizona based, degree-granting institution with a growing enrollment, and a recognized leader and innovator in online education.

Sessions College has continually met the exacting standards of two respected accrediting organizations during its academic evolution. It received non conditional renewals through 2020 in the midst of the most challenging environment for the for-profit school sector, validating that Sessions College exemplifies the academic and business model most beneficial to its students.

The message of quality assurance is echoed by the school's accreditors DEAC and MSA-CSS.

"In receiving renewal of accreditation, Sessions College has demonstrated its commitment to educational excellence and ethical business practices that assure quality, accountability, and improvement in higher learning" commented Dr. Leah Matthews, DEAC's Executive Director.

Henry G. Cram, Ed.D., President of the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools adds: "We congratulate Sessions College on earning accreditation and for recognizing the value of the accreditation process in providing a high quality education to its students."
