Excellence through Distance Learning for Mature Students  



Robertstown is  Nationally Chartered (1982) and FULLY ACCREDITED by the  Higher Education Commission Ministry of Liberia, which grants recognition to post-secondary education institutions in Liberia.

Robertstown University has submitted documentation of degree programs, descriptions of course/course equivalency completion, curriculum, catalog, assessment manual, policies and all required criteria meeting the very high standards required to gain recognition by the Education Ministry of Liberia.

Robertstown University is accredited as a degree-awarding post-secondary institution of higher education in the form of a university by the National Commission on Higher Education, the only  Higher Education Accrediting Authority of the Ministry of Education in the Government of Liberia.

Federal Accreditation by a National Government represents the highest form of globally accepted, legal and valid accreditation of a college or university, and the validity of awarded academic degrees.


Degree evaluators in the United States and abroad have concluded that if a foreign college or university is recognized and accredited by a nation's Ministry of Education, it is viewed to be equal of a regionally or nationally accredited USA degree, and of a nationally recognized degree in other countries.

Robertstown University upholds the highest academic, professional and legal standards of West African higher education credentialing in the Distance Education arena.

In addition to National accreditation, the university has applied for a listing in The International Handbook of Universities (a UNESCO publication).

This listing in the Handbook is widely accepted as equivalent to "accreditation" by registrars worldwide.  It is however, not the only standard of “recognition” used.
