    Dunno. Back when my wife and I split (1978) there was hardly anything to chop in half. :)

    May I suggest that if you do then try to do it with someone else's retirement fund, not your own?

    To my knowledge, Harrison Middleton is not a counterexample. And as I know WISR has discovered first-hand, DEAC doesn't do counterexamples.

    While I do like the idea of doing things with someone else's money, this might be one I do on my own. If I did, though, I'd start with the accrediting agency and work back from there.

    Yep - hardly enough to chop for one good salad. For years after we split, I used to tell people that in the years we were together, my wife and I used to argue plenty - but there were two things we NEVER argued about:

    Money, because there was NONE.
    The kids, because she was always right. :)
  8. That's a stupid statement. Is any foreign accreditor recognized by the USDoE or CHEA?
  10. My apologies. What would have been more civil would have been to say the statement was unfair, sorry.

    And they say there are no stupid questions.

    The short answer: no.

    The short-ish answer: No, because that's not how it works.

    Institutional accreditation as we know it is normally performed by governments, not private agencies. But that's now how it evolved in the US. Thus, there really aren't any "foreign accreditors" in that sense.

    Recognition by a central government is usually good enough to see a degree from a foreign school accepted here in the US. This was done directly in the past, but is now often handled by a group of companies that specialize in foreign degree evaluation. They, in turn, have formed their own organization that recognizes these services (NACES).

    ASIC accreditation is a quality control model, not a form of degree and/or institutional recognition. Thus, a school being accredited by it will have no bearing on the acceptability of its degrees here in the US.

    All of this has been discussed ad nauseum on this board, whose threads are searchable.

    Finally, a vitriolic and ham-handed response to an old thread (and even older post) is an odd way to return.
