Persons whose professional or career goals require certification by a state or federal government agency should check in advance to determine whether a degree from an NCCT or AICCS-accredited school would be acceptable. Individuals needing to earn a regionally accredited degree in one of the disciplines offered by an NCCT or AICCS-accredited institution may wish to investigate comparable programs offered at more traditional on-campus colleges currently accredited by a regional association recognized by the United States Department of Education.
