Academic Acceptance

 

It is exceptional that any company or receiving institution will accept a distance learning degree by merely showing the paper diploma and other documents. How can anyone make sure that those papers were not made up? For this reason, companies and organizations all over request different means to make sure about the validity of the degrees presented to them.

Bircham International University offers several validation options from independent third party organizations as well as the standard international legalization procedures, but such options do have a costs and may take some time. Consequently BIU also provides a free web listing for the verification of any student or graduate's good standing status at BIU. This web reference is often enough for many receiving institutions.

Some American institutions may be reluctant to accept transfer credits from a “non-formal” (distance learning) university which is not accredited by a US CHEA recognized body. In some cases, partial transfer credits are accepted. Note that accreditation (including US CHEA) does not automatically provide, nor guarantee, acceptance of any distance learning degree with other educational institutions or hiring employers.

No educational institution can guarantee the acceptance of their degrees. Acceptance of higher education degrees is always entirely at the discretion of each receiving institution or employer. It also differs depending on their own policy, and the country where they are based. More info...
