If you really want to obtain a PhD from this or any school in Nicaragua then, by all means, feel free. Don't be surprised if, when you subsequently have your degree evaluated by a NACES member for immigration, employment or education purposes you get a message back stating, "Sorry, but this credential is not equivalent to a PhD in the U.S." In other words, caveat emptor. There is usually a gray area...not all things in life are simply black or white. There are several NACES accredited agencies that have deemed UCN doctoral degrees equivalent to U.S. RA. Just because one NACES agency does not think so does not mean all would agree with that assessment. There is much variation between agencies; some see gray, while others see black and white only. I am going out on a limb here--are you by any chance employed by such a NACES agency, perhaps Foundation for International Services (FIS)?
