How can I find out what schools and programs are accredited?

You can find accreditation credentials for most U.S. colleges and programs at the U.S. Department of Education's Database of Accredited Postsecondary Institutions and Programs. The database is based on publicly available information reported to the department by recognized accrediting agencies and state approval agencies that have been asked to provide information for each institution and/or program accredited by that agency.

You can find out more about what college accreditation is and the different types of accreditation in this guide from Accredited Schools Online.
