AACRAO takes a stand on St. Regis University
AACRAO, the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, is widely regarded as the ultimate arbiter on the acceptability of non-US degrees in the US. They were asked by a client about the equivalency of Saint Regis , and this is their formal response.
From AACRAO, www.aacrao.org:
"Saint Regis University " is a virtual university claiming
recognition by the Ministry of Education of Liberia. Recently, the
Ministry of Education in Liberia has recognized a number of virtual
universities, few of which have any actual physical entity in Liberia.
Most of these virtual universities use the same address in Monrovia.
Recognition of an institution by the appropriate educational
authority of a country is usually strong evidence of the credibility of
its issued academic awards as comparable to similar awards in the United
States. However, as the standards of recognition of institutions in some
countries may vary due to local conditions such as civil war and
economic hardship, simple recognition by a foreign government alone
cannot be considered an automatic guarantee of comparability to a United
States academic award and each country's system must be judged on its
own merits in this regard.
Therefore, while we acknowledge previous recognition by the
Ministry of Education of Liberia of the following universities - the
University of Liberia, Cuttington University College, and the African
Methodist Episcopal University - we do not accept the recognition of
Saint Regis University by the Ministry of Education on Liberia as
comparable with the recognition afforded the three above referenced
universities and AACRAO considers Saint Regis University to be
comparable to an entity in the United States that does not have regional

Good news! Perhaps AACRAO should also extend approval to the technical college named for Pres. Tubman. I do not recall the exact name, and do not know if it is still functioning. It is good to see the "big 3 " vindicated and distinguished from the junk.
Hoyer is going to have absolute kittens over this. Watch the fur fly!

I heard a fraud might get upset
I love it when frauds get righteously indignant.
There goes the $50,000 accreditation fee up in smoke! Of course, SRU could have had the fee set up on a monthly payment plan. ;)
