Hello, I am in the process of opening a new online distance learning program and currently seeking legitimate accreditation. The 2 viable options for us right now are SACS and DETC. From my understanding, both of these bodies requires at least 2 years of operation before we can apply. This obviously presents a "catch 22" for us because we currently have no students enrolled. My question is what would be the best course of action for a new school seeking accreditidation? We recognize proper accreditation is vital for the success of our business and would provide legitimacy to our program. Thank you for any suggestions.
