This is a great list of schools - Hot thrilling is it that there are a number of DETC schools on this list? DETC is the gold standard of distance education accreditation, and this list is another example of the high quality of the DETC member's programs.

Great job DETC schools!!

Remember that the U.S. Department of Education views regionally and nationally accredited schools as equal. Regardless, Regionally Accredited schools have far more distance learning programs than Nationally Accredited schools. There many distance learning programs at Regionally Accredited schools that have professional accreditation as well. DETC may accredit schools that offer distance learning programs. However, that does not make DETC the gold standard accreditor of distance education.
