Is This College Regionally Accredited?

A student shows up with an unofficial transcript the week before class starts and wants an evaluation but you’ve never heard of their institution before. Does the college have (or did it once have) regional accreditation so that we can accept the transfer credit?

Well, here is where you go to find out! The DAPIP Database of Accredited Postsecondary Institutions and Programs.

Remember that Credit for Prior Learning may be worth exploring. Check with a supervisor in Admission and Records for more information about this process. It is not for every student as it is time consuming, complicated and currently under review. Financial Aid implications may be of concern as well.
