Accreditation of Canadian and US universities

Higher Learning Commission logoThe quality of American universities is assured by accreditation. By attending an accredited US university, you can be confident that you are obtaining a level of quality education that will be recognized by employers, professional associations, and other universities.

Accreditation in North America

In the USA, private educational associations - recognized by the US government - determine and regulate the educational standards of American universities. Universities that meet and maintain these standards are considered accredited. Many employers, other universities, and governments around the world, do not recognize degrees from unaccredited US universities.

In Canada, there is no national accreditation of higher education. Universities are regulated by provincial government, not by the Canadian federal government. Each Canadian province allows universities to grant degrees according to specific quality assurance standards. Universities that are recognized under these provincial standards are considered authorized.

Types of accreditation and authorization

There are two basic types of university accreditation and authorization in the USA and Canada:

  • covers the whole university and is the primary type of official university recognition in North America. Accreditation is granted by organizations that cover different geographic regions.
  • (also called programmatic or professional accreditation) covers a program or department within a university. Earning a degree that carries specialized accreditation may be a requirement for practicing in certain professions.

Regional institutional accrediting organizations

The universities we work with are accredited by the appropriate regional organization:

Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools

The North Central Association of Colleges and Schools accredits universities in Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, New Mexico, South Dakota, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE)

MSCHE is the unit of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools that accredits universities in the Middle States region: Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

Long Island University and Widener University are accredited by MSCHE.

Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges

Paying tax if I live in Canada...

by help_me_now_please

I'll very probably have to move to Canada some time this year. I'll be actually living there, instead of just visiting, while working for an US firm located in the US. But I have some mutual funds investments and a banking account here in the US. I'm wondering if that will make any differences in the taxes I pay for investent dividends / capital gains / banking interest, and any other incomes in the US if any? Do I have to pay more taxes on those things if living in Canada or do I pay the same amount of taxes on them as if I live in the US? Thank you.
