Supplementary notes

According to the source: In 2000 the federal government established, within the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MoHESR), the Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA) as the federal agency charged with licensing non-federal institutions and accrediting their programs. All non-federal institutions providing a higher education program of one academic year or longer leading to an academic degree, certificate or diploma must be licensed and have its programs accredited by the CAA in order to be officially recognized by the MoHESR.
