Yes. The graduate provides the dates of conference for each degree sought based upon their own Self-Directed Portfolio Assessment.
First, it is recognition for prior experience and knowledge NOT the actual study of any field of academia: The purpose of Ellington University is to allow an individual to possess an academic degree on a much more flexible basis than traditional colleges and universities. Second, it is independent SELF- assessment. The individual grades the responsibility for the individual's academic, occupational, or professional expertise. It is shared between the individual and Ellington University to develop the portfolio profile that can be obtained by authorized requestors. The degree is earned by demonstrating what is known, not how long a student has spent in classroom lectures or completing projects. Ellington University confers degrees based upon the individuals’ Self-Directed Portfolio Assessment.
Yes, Ellington University offers a wide variety of specific degree programs from which to select (click here for list). However, Ellington is not limited to just those programs listed. Ellington will work with each candidate personally to offer the best fit based upon the candidate's specific background and can custom tailor a program to the needs of the individual.
YES. Ellington University is a private Educational Resource Provider, conferring an award based on Personal Achievement and Evaluation. To be issued an Award is Legal, to be issued a Degree is Legal, if licensed under local, state or federal law in a Country which recognizes such authority. Additionally, these degrees are not just issued by the United States or Canada. The British Parliament 1988 Education Act states that, "The awards made by overseas establishments should be recognized, and the assessment and recognition of such qualifications would be a matter for the individual employer and professional bodies". Possessing a degree implies that you have mastered your subject and have received acknowledgement for your effort. Awarding your degree is based on your own personal assessment of skills and application thereof. This degree is legal, because it does not claim to be from an accredited United States learning institution or a British University. Ellington University issues Legal degrees which are accredited through HESA. HESA is an accrediting agency which is not formally endorsed by the United States Department of Education.
Ellington University is proud to state that it has become accredited by HESA (Higher Education Services Association). HESA is an international accrediting body focusing its accreditation efforts on truly international, distance-based, and prior learning assessment institutions which grant credentials based upon the graduate’s previous career, military, life and educational experience. Ellington is proud to display its HESA accreditation certificate
