New York State Education Department
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is one of the most respected education agencies in the United States. The New York Institute of Photography is licensed under the demanding standards of NYSED, and all our programs are regularly reviewed and approved by NYSED, ensuring that we maintain the highest standards of education materials, student service and business practices. All NYIP teachers and key staff are licensed by NYSED. A full explanation of NYSED's requirements that pertain to NYIP is available in our catalog.
BBB (Better Business Bureau)
The mission of the Better Business Bureau is the advance marketplace trust. This is accomplished through a number of different actions. First, the BBB sets standards for trust and encourages businesses to adopt them. It engages with businesses and educates consumers to ensure that best practices are well-known and followed. The BBB celebrates marketplace role models and addresses substandard business behavior to create a community of trustworthiness.
The New York Institute of Photography has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau of Metro New York since 2015. The BBB reviewed NYIP's advertising and student servicing and has certified that we meet or exceed their list of best practices, meaning students can feel confident that NYIP lives up to the promises made to new students.
All of our photography certificate programs are reviewed and approved by the NYSED. Graduates will receive NYIP’s Photography Certificate upon completion of any of our online photography classes.
