Rosemead College is located in sunny Southern California. It was established in 1992 and has two campuses, one in Rosemead and one in Torrance. This school is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students.

Accreditation is a process by which a facility’s services and operations are examined by a third-party accrediting agency to determine if applicable standards are met. Should the facility meet the accrediting agency’s standards, the facility receives accredited status from the accrediting agency. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality.



If you are planning to study in the U.S., it is important to know if the school in which you plan to enroll is accredited by an official accrediting agency. Rosemead College is accredited by ACCET. Accreditation helps to ensure that the school is of high quality and that you will receive the programs and services that the school describes in its promotional materials.

Through the public recognition that accreditation provides, students, sponsors, employers, and others can identify schools that meet the standards for educational quality.

In addition, accreditation is a means for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to certify schools that are eligible to issue the necessary documents for international students to enter the country on a student visa.

We are approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) to operate as an accredited institution.  Our institution is authorized by the English Testing Services (ETS) to be an official TOEFL® iBT and TOEIC Test Center.
