Accreditation and Wolves in Sheep's Clothing

IEASA (International Education Association of South Africa) and ACEI (Academic Credentials Evaluation Institute, Inc.) are proud to present our first collaboration: Accreditation and Wolves in Sheep's Clothing.

This webinar is geared towards international credential evaluators, as well as those higher education professionals who seek to form institutional partnerships, establish exchange and dual degree programs, and those who assist students with choosing study abroad programs and transferring credit. We will examine current issues you need to take into account when evaluating the accreditation status of higher education institutions from around the globe and resources that help identify institutions with dubious accreditation.
