National Accredited Masters Degree

National Accredited Masters Degree

Postby SmokeCheck » Thu Jun 23, 2011 6:33 am

I started a MS in IT Management with a Nationally Accredited school. Does the Navy or selection boards take into consideration if someone?s Master Degree is nationally or regionally accredited?

I know regionally accredited is better but I like the school and if it really doesn?t matter in the long run I?d rather not switch. Thanks

Both care if you got the degree. I've seen greater emphasis placed on getting it on your own time on a board than if through NPS etc..

When the Navy specifies the accreditation status of a bachelor's degree, it usually specifies regional accreditation. See, e.g.:

http://www.google.com/#q=%22regionally+accredited%22+site:navy.mil

Officer accession programs requiring a bachelor's degree (e.g., OCS, BDCP, etc.) and speciality programs (e.g., Nurse Corps) require a degree from a regionally accredited institution. There are other issues that often revolve around transfer of credits between institutions.

You're asking about a graduate program, however, and most guidance I can find, generically speaking, just wants the program's accreditation — whether regional or national — to be recognized by the US Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (e.g., for purposes of tuition assistance). One Navy College Office] web site says[/url:

There are two types of "biggest" accreditation from the US Department of Education: regional and national. Regionally accredited schools are fully transferrable as long as the courses that you completed are what you need for your degree. Nationally accredited schools may be difficult to transfer and are usually more expensive. Both regionally and nationally accredited schools are acceptable for advancement and civilian employment. Civilian jobs in education field usually require a degree from regionally accredited schools.


Use the following two web sites to verify the accreditation is recognized by the Department of Education and CHEA:
