Concordia College's accreditor, the U.S. National Academic Higher Education Agency is founded to foster and preserve high quality, educationally sound and widely accepted distance education standards and to provide a consistent measurement of the acceptability of private schools (K-12), adult high schools, vocational and technical schools, private colleges and postsecondary education. Concordia College & University's legal degree granting authority is fully governed by the institution's international IBC university operating license, based on U.S. Common Law and issued by the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court.
All online schools are global and non-state-specific by nature. Concordia College & University is associated with the The Technology Center Institute,
accredited by the State of Tennessee Real Estate Commission. Concordia College and University degrees have also been accredited internationally on a de facto basis by Government Departments of Education in other countries. Concordia College and University's national accreditation in the United States does not enable our enrollees to participate in Title IV programs.

''This is a significant day for the university as we receive accreditation from a reputable U.S. agency of national scope,'' said Concordia College's founding director. ''This affirmation of our strong commitment to providing our students with a rigorous and well rounded educational assessment program is another step in our growth as a university. I am grateful to our faculty, staff and administration for their diligence exhibited throughout the accreditation process.''
The United States is the only known country in the world that has no Federal Ministry of Education and no centralized authority exercising national control over postsecondary educational institutions. In other words : it is a common misconception to believe that the U.S. government accredits universities or university degrees, it doesn't. Instead, accreditation in the United States is a voluntary process that is implemented only by non-governmental accrediting agencies. Generally, colleges and universities will request to be reviewed by the accreditation agency which has the standards that the institution thinks it can pass. Concordia College & University's accreditation by NAHED does not imply degree granting authority, recognition, or any other kind of involvement from and affiliation with any U.S. federal or Delaware state (or other) government agency. We do not solicit or accept funds from state agencies, companies, or residents of Delaware for any reason.
Concordia College & University is continuously examining both private and governmental accrediting agencies and organizations worldwide, that are complementary to its goals and objectives.

Always inquire with your local authorities before committing to any distance education establishment.
Keep in mind that a school's accreditation status
does not provide ''automatic acceptance'' by an institution of credit earned at another institution, nor does it give assurance of acceptance of graduates by employers. Acceptance of students or graduates is always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer.
Students should take measures to determine, prior to enrollment, whether or not their educational goals will be met through enrollment at a particular institution. These measures should include inquiries to institutions to which future transfer might be desired or to prospective employers.
