REGIONAL ACCREDITATION
YOUR COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY
 
Please check with your school to find out your school's accreditation at the time you received your graduate degree.  
 
If you graduated from an online program, your school must have been regionally accredited. CACREP accreditation is no longer required.
 
The Oregon Student Assistance Commission, Office of Degree Authorization web site has extensive information about accreditation and universities.  Check it out:  http://www.osac.state.or.us/oda/
