The University of Phoenix is regionally accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools/Higher Council of Learning.

Typically if you attend a Regional accredited school as a freshman, you are going to take a lot of general education type of classes your first year, a nationally accredited school will have more of a focus on the degree itself, about 70% towards the degree or core classes and 30% towards general ed. and college core. A nationally accredited school has to meet the same standards as a region. Nationally accrediting agencies are recognized by the DOE (Dept. of Education) such as ACICS.

The University of Phoenix is also accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), which in turn is recognized by the Council for Higher Education (CHEA) and the U.S. Department of Education (USDE).
