Policy on Accepting College Coursework, Post-Secondary and Advanced Degrees

1. Specific college coursework required for a job classification, as well as bachelor’s, graduate, post graduate,
and doctoral degrees will be accepted from schools accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission
(DEAC) or any of the six regional accreditation associations in the United States listed below:

Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)
Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE)
Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU)
Higher Learning Commission (HLC)
New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE)
Western Association of Schools and Colleges –Senior College and University Commission (WASC-SCUC)

College coursework is defined as credit hours leading to a bachelor’s degree or higher.

2. Coursework or degrees from schools that have not been accredited by one of the above accreditation
associations may be accepted if a regionally accredited school* considers the coursework or degree to be an
acceptable prerequisite for admission to an advanced degree program. For example, if a regionally accredited school
accepts an applicant’s bachelor’s degree for admittance into a graduate degree program, State Personnel will accept
the degree. In the case of required college coursework (but no degree requirement), State Personnel will accept the
college coursework if a regionally accredited school accepts the coursework towards a post-secondary degree (e.g., a
bachelor’s degree). This must be documented by a letter of acceptance from the regionally accredited school. State
Personnel will review such requests on a case-by-case basis.

Note: This policy is subject to change. Certain state agencies may have additional requirements.

  • The term “regionally accredited school” refers to an institution of higher education accredited by one of the six
regional accreditation associations listed above.
