Schools and Accreditations

The following table lists all schools, colleges, and universities within 50 miles of that offer a minimum of an Associate degree. Furthermore, the table is broken down into two section separating 2 and 4-year schools.

The accreditation information provided is based on an annual survey conducted by the Dept. of Education (2000). Special note: accreditations can change, you should contact the school to verify if the school is still currently accredited by the institution of interest. A lack of accreditations does not necessarily mean that the school is not accredited, it simply means that that portion of the school survey was not filled out. Responses to the survey are voluntary and therefore may not accurately reflect the actual school's condition. Sources: National Center for Education Statistics (Enrollment data, IPEDS Survey 1998/1999) and (Accreditation data, IPEDS Survey 2000-2001).

Schools with more than 5000 students are highlighted with an asterisk in red.
