The public is alerted to the serious risks of unaccredited institutions offering degrees of questionable merit, referred to as "degree mills."

Of equal concern are institutions claiming to hold accreditation from what may be dubious accreditors, referred to as "accreditation mills."

For current information on such practices, check: http://www.chea.org/degreemills/default.htm

Please refer to the Directory of Institutions to determine the accreditation status of institutions accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission.
