    The Distance Education and Training Council changed its name in 2015 to DEAC - Distance Education Accrediting Commission.

    "The DEAC is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as an institutional accrediting organization for postsecondary distance education institutions that offer programs primarily by the distance education method from the non-degree level up to and including the professional doctoral degree.

    DEAC's goal is to ensure a high standard of educational quality in the distance education institutions it accredits by requiring compliance with its published standards, policies and procedures and by fostering continual self-improvement. DEAC is dedicated to ensuring a quality education for the more than 2 million students who annually study at its accredited institutions."​
