* * * Launched in 1998, Penn State World Campus is the online school of the highly respected Pennsylvania State University.
Penn State World Campus offers an impressive list of online degrees, with more than 120 online programs leading to a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees, as well as certificate programs.
Fully accredited online colleges have become so attractive, more and more of the best campus-based schools compete for students by offering online bachelor’s degree programs, along with online master’s degrees and even doctoral degrees.
A member of the Association of American Universities (an association of excellent North American research universities), Pennsylvania State University is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA).
Pennsylvania State University’s Smeal College of Business also received accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).
There are only seven USDE-recognized regional accreditation agencies, and only six that are both USDE- and CHEA-recognized regional accreditation agencies.
CHEA’s endorsement of an accreditation agency has no real bearing on the merit of the agency; it’s an optional extra stamp of approval. Schools with regional accreditation give you the best hopes for transferability of credits as well as for acceptance into graduate degree programs.
Offerings include online degrees in fields such as technology, engineering, education, healthcare, business, and more.
