Von Alt, Kenneth A., Ed.
A comprehensive guide to institutions of higher learning that are accredited by national and regional accrediting agencies, this annual volume has been published since 1964. Data in each entry have been provided by the accrediting bodies. Admissions officers, counselors, and employers rely upon the accurate and up-to-date information in this directly to determine entrance qualifications/requirements and tuition reimbursement eligibility. Introductory sections in this year's updated edition include: About this Directory; Abbreviations Used in this Directory; and How to Use this Directory. Following this, the directory is divided into five parts: (1) accredited degree-granting institutions (within the U.S. and outside the U.S.); (2) accredited non-degree-granting institutions (within the U.S. and outside the U.S.); (3) major institutional changes that have occurred since the last edition; (4) institutions designated "candidates" for accreditation (degree-granting candidate institutions within the U.S. and outside the U.S.; and non-degree-granting candidate institutions within the U.S. and outside the U.S.); and (5) a listing of public systems of higher education for states and territories. Each entry contains detailed information about the institution, including degrees or certificates offered, academic calendar, accreditation data, enrollment, and full contact information. Appended are: The Accrediting Process; Recognized Accrediting Groups; and Joint Statement on Transfer and Award of Academic Credit. An institutional index is also included. (SLD)
