Recognized Regional Accreditation Associations

****** We have experienced an overwhelming volume of phone calls and email these past few weeks seeking assistance with ELO and licensing. We will continue to work with educators who had reached out for assistance or started an application online prior to June 30th to be able to assist with technical issues that prevented application completion.  Applications from these educators who made a good faith effort to apply will be considered as having been made timely. ******

The following is the list of recognized regional accreditation associations:
  • Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools of Higher Education
  • New England Association of Schools and Colleges
  • North Central Association of Colleges and Schools
  • Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities
  • Southern Association of Colleges and Schools
  • Western Association of Schools and Colleges

To verify that a specific institution is accredited by one of the six recognized regional accreditation associations listed above, look it up by name on the U.S. Department of Education's Institutional Accreditation Search site:
