An accredited institution is a school deemed as accredited at the time the degree was conferred by at least one of the following:
- Non-U.S. Institutions
- the government of a foreign country
- the Ministry of Education in a foreign country
- an approved regional accrediting organization
An accredited institution must also be legally authorized by the state/government to provide that education program. An institution in "candidate" status for accreditation is not considered fully accredited. Please contact the Office of Admissions if you need assistance discerning whether an institution is accredited.
