    My degree says Ellis College Of New York Institute of Technology. Does this mean my degree is worthless since Ellis College no longer exists and became unaccredited? I asked the school and they didn’t answer any of my questions but they responded to my request to take Ellis College off my degree and that was a no.

    No, your degree is not worthless. Your degree was valid at the time of study and graduation because your school accredited. You graduate from Ellis College, a school that belongs to the New York Institute of Technology...not Ellis University. In order words, you graduate from NYIT.

    The whole sorry mess reminds me of the collapse of the New College of California which took its law school with it. There was no alternative accreditation source in that case and a good many students were left high and dry.

    As has been noted, rest easy. If your degree was accredited when you graduated it remains accredited. Plus bonus, it was a college of NYIT.

    It would be best to verify that the records are actually at NYIT before making this claim to an employer, however. If NYIT can verify that a person graduated from there, solid. It doesn't matter what the physical diploma says. I would just drop Ellis from the resume. If the records are kept with Ellis, then while you might be able to claim the NYIT alumni status in good conscience it will be much harder to validate to a prospective employer
