Accreditation and Certification

Grantham University has been continuously accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC) since 1961. All programs of instruction offered by Grantham have been examined by independent objective subject matter experts and have been found to meet or exceed the Accrediting Commission’s published academic and ethical standards.

DEAC was founded in 1926 and is presently listed (and has been since l959) by the U.S. Department of Education as a “nationally recognized accrediting agency.” DEAC is reviewed periodically by the U.S. Department of Education to make certain it meets the criteria for federal recognition. DEAC is also recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), a non-governmental agency that reviews and recognizes agencies that accredit degree-granting institutions. DEAC,, is located at 1101 17th Street NW, Suite 808, Washington, DC 20036 and may be reached by phone at 202-234-5100.

Grantham University is approved and legally authorized to provide post-secondary education by the Kansas Board of Regents, the authority by which Grantham confers degrees.

In accordance with the U.S. Department of Education’s regulation (34 C.F.R. §600.9) regarding legal authorization to provide postsecondary education through distance or correspondence education in a state in which it is not physically located or in which it is otherwise subject to State jurisdiction as determined by the State, Grantham University makes every effort to receive authorization from each state in which its distance/online students reside.

The Importance of Accreditation

Accreditation is a process that gives public recognition to an institution that meets established standards. According to the DEAC, accreditation is “a process whereby an accrediting body grants public recognition to an institution as having met certain standards.” As such, accreditation assures you, the student, that the institution operates on a sound financial basis, has an approved program of study, qualified instructors, adequate facilities and equipment, and approved recruitment and admissions policies.
