Answer 1: If the college or university, or tech/trade/career school, or military school, or seminary, or whatever, that appear in the online databases of either or both of the Department of Education (USDE), and/or the USDE-sanctioned Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), then, yes, it is accredited. It doesn't matter if it's and online or in the classroom of the school. If at least one of the two or both of the USDE and/or CHEA online databases, then it is accredited. Period. On the contrary, if you are not in at least one of the two databases on-line, then beware, because it is almost certainly not accredited... no matter what it says on their web site. And, trust me, if it is a degree mill, will lie and say that it is accredited when it is not. You can even go so far as to create a fake accreditor, and even build a website for him, and then put on the web site as one of the fake accreditor "accredited" schools. BUT DON'T BE FOOLED! Unless the school, whatever the school type, that is to say, appears in one or both of the USDE and/or CHEA online databases, then it is not accredited. Period. If the school in question does not appear in the database first, then check the second, because there are a couple of accreditors which are approved by CHEA, but not USDE, and vice versa. But if the school in at least one of the two databases, then, yes, it is accredited. I have put the links to both the USDE and CHEA databases down in the "sources and related links" section of this web page, below. .
