There was another thread started with the request for the name of a "Reputable & Recognized Unaccredited D/L" institution. That got closed due to apparent shilling. DesElms already addressed this but I couldn't resist saying my piece. It is arguable that the set of reputable institutions and the set of unaccredited institutions do or do not intersect. However, the set of recognized and the set of unaccredited institutions do not intersect, at least not from a generally accepted recognized point of view. Accreditation is the generally accepted method of recognition. So, unrecognized equates to unaccredited. If one is searching for a reputable and recognized unaccredited institution that will accept transfer credits from a unrecognized institution and the person thinks that they might have found one then they should remember the words of Groucho Marx. "I wouldn't want to be a member of any club that would accept me as a member." The very fact that an institution would accept unaccredited units for transfer would make them a questionable and disreputable institution.
