    Can anyone give a quick look of this organization's accreditation?

    Although there are two links, one for regional and one for certifications and authorizations, I cannot see any specific regional accreditation body. I am also not familiar with any of the organizations they are referencing.

    (Is there a scale of "total rip-off" to "impeccable" of accreditation?)

    UAT also holds the following accreditations, authorizations and approvals:

    It's regionally accredited, by the North Central Association of the HLC. That's the specific regional body you were looking for.

    They confirm it here. Higher Learning Commission!

    For institutional accreditation, that's top-drawer - as good as it gets in the US. Prior to becoming Regionally Accredited in 2009, the school was nationally accredited for some years - by ACICS, if I remember correctly. The Wiki on UAT notes that there is no additional programmatic accreditation from ABET or ATMAE for any of the individual programs, but I have no idea whether that's important in your specific case.

    The institutional accreditation (entire school) is 100% bona-fide and top quality. I've long regarded it as an interesting school, with some unique or hard-to-find specialized degree programs.
