Accreditation/ Certification/Approval

About Accreditation

In the United States, accreditation is used to assure quality in schools, educational institutions, and programs.  It should be noted that accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental process of review and evaluation.  The accreditation process requires an educational institution or program to meet certain standards or criteria set forth by the accrediting body.  These standards change from State to State and from region to region. 


These standards also change with time.  In fact, thankfully and partly because of our country’s heritage and Constitution (re: “freedom of choice”) there are no two Universities that have the same structure, philosophies, teaching modalities, or evaluation criteria.  This can act to allow or permit a certain degree of freedom.  Our programs are not designed to meet any specific local, state, territorial, regional or national licensing or credentialing laws.  Furthermore, being non-traditional in nature our programs are not designed to meet a particular requirement established by any private association or “traditional” licensing or other accrediting organization.

Without a doubt, many of our students/graduates are among the highest caliber, most intelligent, talented, best educated and most influential individuals you will find anywhere.  They and their MTS degrees are equal to their counterparts from traditional schools anywhere in the world.
