What is the difference between national and regional accreditation. Does the fact that an organization is nationally, but not regionally, accredited devalue the degree they offer? What are you thoughts?
Case in point. I was reading about the distance learning programs at American Public University System
. Have you heard anything about them? Their website states the following:
National Accreditation: American Public University System is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC).
Regional Accreditation: American Public University System was granted candidacy status by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association.
