Hi Is Delaware University of Sciences FAKE? If yes, how can I prove it in a sensible way to someone? Because I couldn't find any proof online! Thank you

Thanks for your question.

Accreditation can be a very complicated and confusing topic especially when diploma mills often set up their own, fake accreditation agencies to "accredit" their scams!

The quickest way to see if an online school is legit or not is to search for the name of the school in the U.S. Dept. of Education's accreditation search.

If the school is not found you can trust that their accreditation is NOT recognized by the U.S. Dept. of Education.

Unrecognized accreditation is the NUMBER ONE sign of a diploma mill scam and we would not recommend paying money to or enrolling in any program whose accreditation is approved.
