WHAT DOES REGIONAL ACCREDITATION MEAN? 

Regionally accredited institution of higher education means a community college, college, or university which is a candidate for accreditation or is accredited by one of the following regional accrediting bodies:

    Middle States, Association of Colleges and Schools

    New England Association of Schools and Colleges

    North Central Association of Colleges and Schools

    Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities

    Southern Association of Colleges and Schools

    Western Association of Schools and Colleges; Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges

HOW CAN I CHECK FOR REGIONAL ACCREDITATION?
There are several methods available. We recommend checking several sources to double-check the reliability of the first:

        Ask the college/university to identify whether they are regionally accredited, and if so, by which accrediting body. Then visit the web site for the regional accrediting body (see links above), and look up your college/university in their listing of accredited institutions.

        Visit http://www.utexas.edu/world/univ/ for a listing (alphabetical or by state) of regionally accredited colleges/universities, maintained by the University of Texas.
