I have a friend that has graduated from a couple of schools. The questions that they posed to me was how to list their degree(s) if they should and also the schools that they graduated from have changed their name.
If a person graduates from a school that in non-accredited should this be listed in their credentials? If so, should it be listed along with those degrees that are from regionally accredited ones, or should there be a designation to list it as a non-accredited degree? The school in question has been debated on here, and isn't a diploma mill. In other words, the student didn't pay a fee and just get a degree. They actually took courses for it and did receive an education, it is that the school isn't accredited. Or, do you feel it is best to never list an unaccredited degree?
The student also graduated from a school that is nationally accredited by the DETC. So the issue of accreditation isn't that this school isn't accredited, but that it is a nationally accredited one. Should this also just be included with the regionally accredited ones, or should this also have a designation that it is nationally accredited?
The last question is that the student has graduated from a couple of schools that have since changed their names to a different name. There are some that say that you should list it as to the name that is listed on the original degree. However, there are some that say that you should list the name of the new school since it is the same so if it ever had to be referenced and so forth. What is the opinion of others on this and what have you done if you have had this experience?
The problem as to the name change of the schools is that when listing this on any kind of qualification, it seems to me that it looks weird to put the name of the new school, and say formerly .... school. This is where the issue stems in and one that needs to get some feedback.
