The important issue is the school's accreditation. When choosing

a college or university, make sure the institution has a regional

accreditation. With a regional accreditation you can be assured the

coursework and degree you complete will be recognized by all other

colleges and universities as well as employers. Below I have listed

the six accrediting agencies and their geographical areas of

responsibility. Make sure the institution is accredited by one of

following responsible agencies.

Regional Accreditation Agencies

· Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools -

Educational institutions in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,

Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the

US Virgin Islands, as well as schools for American children in

Europe, North
