The Irvine Institute of Technology is currently working to gain recognition from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) for following the United States Office of Education’s policies for accreditation.

Accreditation is a status granted to an educational institution or a program that has been found to meet or exceed stated criteria of educational quality. In the United States accreditation is voluntarily sought by institutions and programs, and is conferred by non-governmental bodies.
Accreditation has two fundamental purposes: to assure the quality of the institution or program, and to assist in the improvement of the institution or program. Accreditation, which applies to institutions or programs, is to be distinguished from certification and licensure which apply to individuals.
For all educational courses, Irvine Institute of Technology uses standard textbooks and syllabi to meet the ABET accreditation standards for undergraduate study. Students complete homework and take examinations, and grades will be assigned at the end of each class session.
