ALL of our services are conducted via electronic delivery means, with NO RESIDENCY requirements. This is the reason we can do what we do, for such small fees.

The idea of centralized government control over higher education in the United States was rejected in favor of a system of voluntary regional accreditation organizations. Membership in any one of the several U.S. regional accrediting associations is strictly voluntary. These regional accrediting associations are privately owned and operated and are NOT owned or operated by the U.S. Government or the U.S. Department of Education. Apply Now

There is no control on the use of the word accredited. If the school offers a program similar to ours, they are not accredited by an agency that is recognized by the US Department of Education.

Those limitations include professional license requirements, Doctors, Lawyers, etc. Federal program funding, and traditional graduate school admittance.
