ACHENA accredited schools have successfully demonstrated that they meet peer reviewed standards of excellence in homeopathic education and training. Homeopathic students and the larger homeopathic community will further benefit when ACHENA, as an accreditation agency, successfully demonstrates to the USDE that they have achieved nationally reviewed standards of excellence. ACHENA will continue to function as an independent, peer-monitored agency with established standards of due process and transparency. A USDE recognized, ACHENA accredited homeopathic school becomes eligible for federal student loans, student visas and other funding on behalf of the students they serve, including consumer protections under the law.
