Accredited Universities in the United States

For international students that plan to study in America, the Council of Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) is an excellent resource to ensure the colleges and universities you look into meet the standards of academic quality and recognition you are seeking, as well as to ensure they will help meet both your long and short term academic and career goals. The decision to study at an accredited university in the United States guarantees international students that study in America can transfer with ease among the greatest number of reputable institutions of higher learning, while avoiding unintended application submissions to colleges and universities that may not be accredited through these desired channels. However, it is worth noting a number of technical colleges and specialty schools might not have these formal accreditations yet are worthwhile career paths for some individuals, depending on their unique situations.
