Is DETC a recognized accrediting body?
The DETC's Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Recognition by ED since 1959 and CHEA and its predecessors since 1973 means that these organizations have determined that DETC meets their respective standards and is regarded as a credible evaluator of institutional and program quality.
What type of accreditation is provided through DETC?
DETC accredits entire institutions and the programs they offer. Since DETC only accredits institutions that offer more than half of their programs through distance learning, the Accrediting Commission’s examining teams are experienced specialists and practitioners who ensure that an institution’s programs and services are designed and delivered appropriately for distance learning.
