Recognized Accreditation

Degrees recognized by the Department of Public Instruction for licensure under state law must be from accredited institutions.  Accredited institutions under state law are institutions of higher education that meet accepted criteria of quality as established by a regional or national accrediting agency, as recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, or a programmatic accrediting organization.

To check if your college/university is accredited by the U.S. Department of Education, please refer to the U.S. Department of Education accreditation search.

To view all U.S. Secretary of Education recognized accrediting associations, access the Accreditation in the United States web page.
