Thanks for your question.
For an online degree in the USA to be “real” it must be properly accredited. Accreditation provides an independent review of a college or university and determines if that education is of uniform and sound quality, thus a reliable education.
In the United States accreditation is determined by a number of agencies approved by the U.S. Department of Education or the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
Kingslake University claims accreditation from:
Arab Accreditation Council (AAC)
Global Accreditation Board for Distance Education (GABDE)
International Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology Education (IABET)
Association for Accreditation of Business Schools & Programs (AABSP)
European Accreditation Board for Online Education (EABOE)
These all sound pretty official but in reality NONE are recognized by CHEA or the U.S. Dept. of Education.
We would not advise you to attend any online college or university that lacks recognized accreditation. Employers often consult free services like the GetEducated Diploma Mill Police to verify that prospective employees education credentials are not from degree mills.
Unaccredited universities try to trick students into thinking they are accredited by creating their own accrediting body, making their scheme look very official.
Instead, there are over 18,000 accredited options in our online degree database. Begin by selecting your preferred degree major and level.
