Best College Accreditation

One of the most frequently asked questions about online degrees is what type of accreditation should an online college hold?

The short answer is that there are two types of overall college accreditation in the USA:

1) regional;

2) national.

These 2 types of accreditation are not the same, and the type of accreditation your online degree programs holds will affect:

1) employer acceptance of your degree;

2) your degree’s acceptance for professional licensing;

3) your ability to transfer credits and courses earned from one degree program to another.
