Kristal University has received accreditation from the Ministry of Education and Science for the First-Level Diploma (DNP) in Law and the Second-Level Integrated Diploma (DIND) in Pharmacy. As of 2012, it is awaiting decisions from the Albanian Public Agency for the Accreditation of Higher Education  on the accreditation of its other faculties and is in the process of application for international accreditation. In May 2012, the Albanian government withdrew KU's accreditation for one year due to a major scandal (see below).
The reputation of Kristal University within Albania is generally poor, and was further shattered by a major scandal in 2012. The Italian media discovered that in 2010, Renzo Bossi son of the Italian Lega Nord leader and politician Umberto Bossi, purchased a Bachelor degree in Business Management from Kristal University using public funds. The Albanian custom police reported Renzo Bossi had never entered Albania
