Accredited Distance Education

The University of Philosophical Research of Los Angeles , California has been duly examined and found to meet the educational and ethical business standards of the accrediting commission of the Distance Education Accrediting Commission – the “Global Leader in Distance Learning Accreditation.”

Accreditation assures the education community, the general public and other organizations that an accredited institution has met the high quality educational and business standards set by a national accrediting agency for it operation and educational programs.

. The DEAC’s Accrediting Commission is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Many government agencies support their students attending DEAC institutions including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and FEMA.

. DEAC meets precisely the same standards as do regional accreditation agencies. The Secretary of Education has officially recognized DEAC since 1959 and the Council for Higher Education and it predecessor since 1975.

. DEAC has developed tougher, more stringent standards in distance learning than any other agency in the United States.

. DEAC institutions are known to have highly sophisticated and well developed student services, carefully crafted curricula and world class faculty. Since 1890, over 130 million Americans have enrolled with DEAC members.

. DEAC’s 2006 survey of DEAC graduates showed that of those attempting to transfer credits and degrees, 70% were successful. Acceptance of degrees or credits from DEAC – accredited institutions is largely determined by the policy of the “receiving organization,” e.g., an employer, a college registrar, etc.

. DEAC accreditation is not a guarantee that credits will transfer to any college or university. You should always check with the college or university to which you wish to transfer credits before you enroll.

. The American Council on Education reviews courses of DEAC-accredited institutions and makes credit recommendations that are published annually in “The National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs.”
