About this session

When dealing with educational credentials from the United States, do you look for national, regional or programmatic accreditation? The decentralised nature of the US education system can make it challenging to determine whether or not an institution is recognised. This poster offers an overview of the US accreditation system, the different types of accreditation and where to look to confirm institution recognition, as well as tips on identifying unrecognised accrediting bodies.
