St. Regis is  Chartered (1984)  by the National Legislature, the Board of Directors having been appointed under the terms of its charter and ACCREDITED by the  Higher Education Commission of the Education Ministry of Liberia, which grants recognition to post-secondary education institutions in Liberia including University of Liberia and Cuttington University College.

The Republic of Liberia is one of the earliest United Nations Educational Organization UNESCO Higher Education Partners, and a historical American ColonySt. Regis University is listed at UNESCO and is scheduled for print in their upcoming handbook edition 2005.

St. Regis 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  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.

St. Regis University is dedicated to meet and often exceeds all current academic, professional and legal standards of higher education credentialing in the Distance Education arena.

From 'The Perspective' (Atlanta, Georgia): ''Liberian Government's Minister of Education becomes MINISTER OF THE YEAR 2002-2003''.

St Regis University programs are flexible, but thorough, taking into consideration the outcome of the assessment of many years of experience, research, coursework, papers, and/or testing-out as a means of measuring competency thus allowing the student many options beyond formal education.


St. Regis University places heavy emphasis on what students actually know and what they can produce by reviewing assignments, examinations, and measuring all forms of learning.


St. Regis places less emphasis on “systems” and more emphasis on “'outcomes”.


St. Regis 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.


In addition to this accreditation, the university is in the application process for 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. 






St. Regis University  is listed online with UNESCO, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, established on 16th of November 1945. It has its headquarters in Paris, France and 73 field offices and units in different parts of the world.

It is important to understand that the US government does not accredit non-US schools and that other governments do not accredit US schools. Each country's minister of education or department of education provides for the recognition or accreditation of its own country's schools only.

In general, in the US, any evaluation agency that is a member of one of more of the following organizations are generally accepted by employers and other colleges and universities: AACRAO (The American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers), NAFSA (The Association of International Educators), AICE (The Association of International Credential Evaluators, Inc), NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services).

St. Regis University is a foreign distance learning university.  One of the recommendations of the National Council on the Evaluation of Foreign Education Credentials is that the Foreign Government must accredit the university or institution.  This institution is fully accredited by the Government of Liberia.

In other countries you would use the recognized evaluation agencies that evaluate for your home country. For many countries the same evaluation agencies that evaluate for the US would evaluate for Canada, Europe etc. Ask the agency that you use if they evaluate for Canadian, Asian, European etc., equivalencies.

The equivalency of St. Regis University degrees to US RA and Canadian degrees has been established by several recognized agencies. It is important that you check with your employer and with the colleges or universities that you plan to attend to learn of their requirements.

There are several  agencies that will contact a potential employer on your behalf and inquire as to acceptance of any degree. We recommend www.TheCareerPeople.com
