Council on Accreditation - Parks, Recreation, Tourism and related professions

Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and accrediting organizations are concerned about degree mills, institutions granting diplomas as a commodity to be bought and sold. Degree mills demean the value of learning and the importance of educational standards.

Please watch this important video regarding degree and accreditation mills. According to CHEA, "Degree mills and accreditation mills mislead and harm. In the United States, degrees and certificates from mills may not be acknowledged by other institutions when students seek to transfer or go to graduate school. Employers may not acknowledge degrees and certificates from degree mills when providing tuition assistance for continuing education. “Accreditation” from an accreditation mill can mislead students and the public about the quality of an institution. In the presence of degree mills and accreditation mills, students may spend a good deal of money and receive neither an education nor a usable credential."  Read more on CHEA's website.
