The lawsuit filed in federal court (in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia) by USA English Language Center (USAELC) against the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET), concerning ACCET’s denial of reaccreditation to USAELC and various other accreditation matters, has been confidentially settled and dismissed with prejudice, without any admission of liability or wrongdoing by either party. USAELC, having obtained accreditation with another recognized accrediting agency, has decided to not seek any further grant of accreditation from ACCET. All other terms of the settlement are confidential, and neither party will be making any further statement about the case or the settlement.
