How to evaluate an online college's accreditation
It is very important that an online college or university's accreditation is issued by an organization listed by the U.S. Department of Education as an authority on higher education. Only a few organizations, including ACICS, make that list. There is some confusion about the differences and similarities between regional and national accreditation. The Department of Education makes it clear that neither is better than the other. Globe University/Minnesota School of Business chose national accreditation, a measure that relies on results-oriented factors and most closely with our goal of career preparation.
National accreditation is recognized by various organizations and means students in our online programs are eligible for financial aid. Employers often consider accreditation when hiring or issuing tuition reimbursement.
