    My bachelor and masters degrees are from BYU, which is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. I did postgraduate work at Arizona State U., which is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the Northcentral Association of Colleges and Schools. My doctorate was completed at La Sierra U., which is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges ansd Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. I now work for Sullivan U., which is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

    What a mouthful! Surely the regionals can come up with less burdensome names.

    Academy of Art University - Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and a bunch of others in some specific courses (like the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) for the Architectural programs)

    Universidade Federal do Parana - this is a University owned by the Brazilian Federal Government. Like most countries outside the USA, it need to follows the rules and regulations of the Ministry of Education. There´s no exterior third party accreditation (but my current brazilian BA is evaluated by WES as equivalent of a american RA degree).

    Hi Steve,

    Did you at one time consider SMC University? How did that go, or am I mistaken?

    Yes, I considered their PhD in Economics. The program itself seemed okay, but once I was enrolled and looking at the course material I realized I'd overestimated how much sustainable interest I had in the subject. And it didn't help when they told me they had no intention of filing for ACBSP accreditation for that particular program, even though they have it for every other doctoral program. So I went back to looking for the right program in a school of education, where I belong, and have ended up enrolling at the EdD in Higher Education program at the University of Memphis. (Hopefully the third time's the charm!)

    If someone were interested in that program at SMC I wouldn't dissuade them, but I might steer them toward their Doctorate in Political Economy, as it's ACBSP accredited.
