Some schools are accredited and some are not. Proper accreditation assures you of a school’s quality and ensures that your degree will be recognized by other schools and employers.

What if my school isn’t accredited?

If you choose a school that isn’t accredited, you may find that many businesses won’t accept your diploma. It may be difficult to convince employers to take your degree seriously, particularly if it is in a traditional subject (math, English, history, etc.) If your degree is in a less traditional subject, one which most schools do not offer, it may be easier for employers to accept your degree.
