List of international university accreditation, recognition and other education quality references applicable to an international university. This list includes all current and former references where Bircham International University is or has been involved.


Accreditation is an institutional process that evaluates the instructional methods of various international universities and institutions while respecting their autonomy and specificity. It also ensures academic quality through peer review. International universities normally strive to obtain accreditation to prove their quality of their academic programs.

The process of accreditation is non-governmental and voluntary. An International University normally appeals for accreditation to a private, regional, and/or professional association and submit an application. The accrediting institution performs an overall assessment of the university and grants the accreditation, if deemed satisfactory. Note that each accrediting organization holds its own accreditation criteria. No worldwide accreditation standards are currently available.

If a Bircham International University graduate wishes to pursue a program at another university, he/she should verify first that the credits earned at Bircham International University are transferable. Many institutions are reluctant to accept credits from a non-formal distance education university and/ or from a non-CHEA accredited institution. In some cases, partial credit transfer is accepted. Note that accreditation (including the one granted by CHEA–USA) does not automatically provide an acceptance and/or a validation of a distance learning degree, nor does it guarantee its acceptance by hiring firms. For these reasons, it is the student responsibility to check with his/her potential university and/or employer the acceptability of a Bircham International University distance learning degree, prior to enrollment.
