Help Stop Fake College Degree Accreditation Agencies

Here is the official Get Educated list of 40+ fake college accreditation agencies that claim to oversee a variety of online college and university degree programs.

Most of these agencies “accredit” diploma mills or degree mills.

Consumers Beware: NONE of these accrediting agencies are recognized as college accreditors in the U.S. by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation or the U.S. Department of Education. As such, colleges claiming “accreditation” by these agencies are not accepted as valid providers of online degrees and should be approached with great caution if college credibility is important to you.

Remember, most diploma mills and degree mills are accredited—but by fake or phony agencies that the degree mills themselves own and operate!

Confused about degree mills? Check out the Diploma Mill Police’s list of suspected degree mills.

Online Degree Credibility Questioned by Employers and Community College Students

Traditional degrees still win out over online degrees—at least in employers’ eyes.
 
A new study titled “Not Yet Sold: What Employers and Community College Students Think About Online Education” revealed that employers are still skeptical about online degree quality.
 
The report also revealed that community college students have concerns about online learning.
 
The September 2013 study was released by Public Agenda, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that focuses on finding solutions for key issues, including higher education, energy issues, healthcare and the national debt.

Growing Community Colleges Online See New Trends in E-Learning

Online education isn’t just expanding. It’s also getting better. 
 
Student enrollment is up at community colleges online, and the gap between distance learning and face-to-face student completion rates is closing, according to the latest findings from the Instructional Technology Council (ITC).
 
In an environment where most colleges are struggling with budget cuts and decreased funding, e-learning continues to shine as a new way to learn.
 
ITC, which represents nearly 400 institutions that offer distance education courses in the United States, Canada and around the world, surveys its members each year about online learning.
 
The most recent survey, “Trends in eLearning: Tracking the Impact of eLearning at Community Colleges,” notes that distance education enrollments grew by 6.52 percent from fall 2011 to fall 2012. This stands in contrast to overall student enrollment, which declined by 2.64 percent
