HEC URGES STUDENTS TO AVOID APPLYING FOR UNRECOGNIZED GRADUATE PROGRAMS
The Higher Education Commission (HEC) in Islamabad sends a student notice advising them to confirm the program and institute’s accreditation status. The professional degree programs provided by universities and institutions are recognized by 14 professional accrediting bodies. It is important to note that in addition to HEC’s recognition, these authorities’ accreditation is necessary.

Only the institute’s status is acknowledged by HEC. However, the agencies responsible for professional certification examine the qualifications for professional degrees. These include the Pakistan Medical and Dental Commission. Before being admitted, students must confirm that a certain degree program offered by a school has been approved by the necessary accrediting body.
