Glossary of Terms

Degree Mill / Diploma Mill An institution of higher education operating without supervision of a state or professional agency and granting diplomas which are either fraudulent or, because of the lack of proper standards, worthless. (Also known as degree mills or mills). A diploma mill (also known as a degree mill) is an organization which awards academic degrees and diplomas with little or no academic study and without recognition by official bodies. Such organizations are unaccredited by standards of traditional institutions, but they often claim accreditation by non-standard organizations set up for the purposes of providing a veneer of authenticity. Accreditation – CHEA: www.chea.org Accreditation is the process by which a facility becomes officially certified as providing services of a reasonably good quality, so that the public can trust in the quality of its services. The United States has no Federal Ministry of Education or other centralized authority exercising single national control over postsecondary educational institutions in this country. The States assume varying degrees of control over education, but, in general, institutions of higher education are permitted to operate with considerable independence and autonomy. As a consequence, American educational institutions can vary widely in the character and quality of their programs. In order to insure a basic level of quality, the practice of accreditation arose in the United States as a means of conducting non-governmental, peer evaluation of educational institutions and programs. Private educational associations of regional or national scope have adopted criteria reflecting the qualities of a sound educational program and have developed procedures for evaluating institutions or programs to determine whether or not they are operating at basic levels of quality. Between 1974 and 1993 the principal non-governmental agency recognized to oversee accrediting in the United States was the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation (COPA). After COPA dissolved it was replaced by a temporary organization (the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation) until the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) was organized in 1997. Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) - A non-profit organization of colleges and universities serves as the national advocate for voluntary self-regulation through accreditation in the United States of America. CHEA maintains a list of all the accredited Universities, Institutes and also of all the recognized accrediting bodies in U.S.A.
