Not long ago I moved a bit up-state to Canton, OH. I was curious as to whether or not any local colleges offered accelerated degree programs. I stumbled upon two that did. Malone College: When asked what institution I would be coming from I said American InterContinental University. She responded: "American (pause) InterContinental (pause) University... are they regionally accredited?" To which I had to inform her of their SACS accreditation. Then it was "Oh, yeah. Okay then." After that I phoned Walsh University: I told them where I was coming from "American Intercontinental University" I said. To which the advisor responded "Ameri... what? Are they accredited?" To which I had to say "Yes, they're accredited by SACS" to which she replied "Oh, well then we would accept those credits." Perhaps it's because 'American InterContinental University" too closely resembles past and current diploma/degree mills. I'm not sure. Anyway, I just figured I'd share my story.
