On January 17th, 2009 Anaheim University gained national accreditation from the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC), an 82-year old accrediting commission based in Washington, D.C. The Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council is a recognized member of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
The DETC Accrediting Commission defines, maintains, and promotes educational excellence in distance education institutions, reviewing an institution's mission and objectives; student services; qualifications of administrators, faculty and staff; educational program objectives, curricula and materials; admission practices, and financial responsibility. DETC accreditation helps facilitate acceptance of credits and degrees by other academic institutions. U.S. Department of Education recognition qualifies DETC institutions and students for federal aid, such as military tuition assistance, government tuition reimbursement, and Veterans Administration entitlement programs.
According to Anaheim University President Dr. William Hartley, We are a much better institution for pursuing DETC accreditation. DETC standards are high and we are proud to have met or exceeded them and to be accredited by the DETC.
