It is really important to understand what accreditation is if you are considering higher education. There are different types of accreditation and by having knowledge of this and doing a bit of research on your potential school, you can ensure that you will be earning a legitimate degree.
There are two types of accreditation, national and regional. While both types of accreditation will earn you a valid degree and allow you to use financial aid, regional accreditation is the highest form of accreditation. All of Bryant & Stratton College’s campuses and Online Education division are regionally accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
If you still have additional questions and are thinking of going back to school, my previous post, “Buyer Beware: What You Should Know Before Enrolling in an Online Degree,“ may be helpful to you as well. It is important to check the facts on any school you are considering for enrollment so that you do not waste any of your time or money on a degree that is not going to be acknowledged by employers.
