Our University is a free and private institution. It is legally registered IBC in the Commonwealth of Dominica. Its curricula are globally distributed by Uniselinus Europa LTD in London through its subsidiaries and support offices (local branches). Selinus University is an independent private international university that exclusively deals with online and distance learning: in other words, an open University dealing with adult students who carry out their distance study program online. Our adult students work very hard in order to obtain their degrees. This University is not and has never been a degree mill and we will instantly reject such applications. Our main focus has always been to offer the highest quality of education to our adult students. Degrees conferred by Selinus University have been internationally recognized by private corporations and accepted by multinational businesses.
About accreditation, especially for USA students, we are never tired of giving clear-cut explanations: earning accreditation is a voluntary and non-governmental process in the United States. Schools request to be evaluated and/or have their programs evaluated by an independent accrediting agency. The agency sets its own standards that institutes must meet in order to earn accreditation; since accrediting agencies have different quality standards, some are considered more prestigious than others. Schools choose them depending on what standards of quality they hope to achieve and maintain.
Schools usually familiarize with the agency’s standards well ahead of time and spend several months preparing for their accreditation review. If they pass the quality review and earn accreditation, the schools get to be considered as legitimate institutions of higher education, meeting an acceptable level of quality. Some schools may include their accreditation status in the information they offer to potential students.
Just as there are recognized accrediting agencies, there are unrecognized ones. This means that their standards have not been reviewed by the Department of Education nor by CHEA. There are many reasons why an agency may be unrecognized. For example, the agency is being working on ratification by the Department or CHEA, or it might not meet the criteria for recognition by either organization. Whatever the reason, it is important to keep that in mind when exploring college info.
You should consider unrecognized accrediting agencies with caution until you can evaluate their reputation. An unrecognized agency does not necessarily have low quality standards, but it is important to know that many US employers only recognize degrees from institutions accredited by a recognized agency.
For this reason, our University only accepts students who are already professionally settled. Our students use the degree to legitimize their professional role rather than to find a new one. A degree from Selinus University elicits esteem, respect and prestige, and often improves one’s social standing and working profile.
