What is Accreditation?

This is an important issue when looking at any degree program. However, when looking at any of the public colleges, the appropriate accreditation can be assumed. When you are looking for an online four-year degree program, you will want to make sure that the college is regionally accredited. Regional Accreditation ensures that you will be completing a degree that is widely recognized for employment and is accepted at other regionally accredited institutions.
