On the DLTruth bulletin board, when they’re not busy attacking me, there is some interesting and useful information posted. Randall Flagg reported that he had searched through the literature of 550 schools, and found 50 that had a process to consider unaccredited degrees: about 9%. I asked for some details, and he wrote as follows, giving permission to post it here. There is good information here. Wouldn’t it be great if someone did the same research with the remaining 4,000-or-so schools that have recognized accreditation . . . as well as whether they distinguish among the kinds of unaccredited schools they will consider: California-approved vs. Alabama-licensed vs. St. Kitts-accredited, and so on. Here’s what Mr. Flagg wrote, unedited: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I searched through 550 schools to find 50 that had a process to consider unaccredited degrees--9%. Maybe beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Had I checked with first tier schools (only) perhaps the acceptance rate would have been worse or even better if only at the fourth tier schools. I guess one man's poke in the eye with a sharp stick is another's eye massage. Or perhaps it mostly depends on what we want to find or where we hunt. From what I could tell mostly case by case. _Here are a few examples:__ University of Hawaii at Manoa:_"Degrees from unaccredited institutions will be evaluated on a case by case basis."__ Phoenix Seminary:_"Graduates of Unaccredited institutions, when accepted, are placed on academic probation for their first year of study at Phoenix Seminary........etc." __ Ohio State University: "This classification is assigned for one or more of the following reasons. The applicant has:_"1-A baccalaureate or professional degree from an unaccredited college or university."__ Beacon University: "Graduates from unaccredited institutions may be accepted conditionally."__ University of Idaho:_"GRE general appitude scores if bachelor's degree is from an unaccredited institution."__ Seattle Pacific University:_"SPU will therefore, review credentials from unaccredited institutions at the students request."__ Liberty University:_"Applicants who hold a bachelor's degree from an unaccredited institution may be admitted to some master's degree programs on Academic Probation Status."__ Arkansas State University:_"Or whose baccalaureate degree is from an unaccredited institution, may be granted Conditional Admission Status after.....etc." __ Florida State University:_Unaccredited Undergraduate Degree:_"If you have your undergraduate degree from an unaccredited institution, but your GRE scores meet the "Minimum" requirement, we can consider your application." __ American Indian University:_"Transfer of credit from non-accredited colleges will be awarded under the following conditions....etc."__ University of Oregon:_"A student from an unaccredited institution, or one that offers the equivalent of bachelor's degree instruction but not the degree itself, may be consdiered for admission under special procedures." Auburn University:_"Students transferring from an unaccredited institution may be granted provisional credit. When such credit is allowed, the final amount of credit will be determined upon completion by the student of one year of work at Auburn University....etc." __ Eastern Oregon University:_"Course work taken at a non-accredited institution will be evaluated but not applied until the completion pf 35 EOU credits." __ Troy State University, Dothan AL.:_"Students transferring from unaccredited institutions who have earned an overall grade point average of 2.0 (4.0 scale) or better may be granted provisional admission...etc." **Troy also said it will not accept DETC accredited degrees but would work with me on an unaccredited degree. (strange that) __ Some of the schools don't say no--but say send the transcripts and and xxxx number of dollars and we will let you know. So who really knows--9% -- 15%-- 20%-- no way to know. Union Institute and University said they would have to see the details first. I transferred credits from a state approved school to two DETC accredited schools. They asked no questions and I didn't argue with them. My wild guess?? maybe as many as 20% of accredited schools would consider the transfer--but that's just a guess. Many seem to be willing to listen--especially if you are serious--willing to pay and send them some signed papers. The final answer I don't know--but if you look long enough you can find one who will. And one is all you need.
