I keep seeing some one add the ACIS "recognized" info on all entries about this "school" yet I can never find anything other than a link to their own website. What do you guys think? --Super--

Please remove the outgoing link from Calvary University. Calvary University in your article is an unaccredited university based in Virgina. The outgoing link you put in place links to an accredited university (HLC and ABHE) in Kansas City, MO, called Calvary University (formerly Calvary Bible College).

Requesting that someone please add a sentence that Atlantic International University is accredited by the Accreditation Service for International Colleges  a UK based recognized accreditation agency listed in the Council for Higher Education Accreditation's international directory 
- Not done The institution itself says it is not accredited by any accreditation agency recognized by the US DoE. jfeise (talk) 14:48, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I saw that. However, I did not realize that this article only applies to the United Sates. If so, maybe it should read "List of Unaccrecited Institutions of Higher Education In The United States." Some of the institutions on this list have legit accreditation but not in the US hence, I was confused. To the public eye, it reads as if some of these institutions have no accreditation at all, which is inaccurately presented. Just trying to make sure readers are not being misinformed as to some of these institutions. Although the accreditation agency is not US based, they are recognized accreditors in the Council for Higher Education Accreditation's directory hence, a special line adding that the institution is accredited, but not by a US based agency would be sufficient. This gives readers accurate information.
- This topic, in connection with this particular US-based institution has come up before, in October 2015, here and here. jfeise (talk) 02:25, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
Wow, it appears to be an on going issue. However, some good points were made by all. Hopefully this will get resolved in the near future.
Hey. I agree with the people here. The article should be named: List of higher education providers unaccredited by US based organizations." Or something like this. As we know, the US is not good at regulating, and they often demand a lot of money and unnecessary procedures for what they do. So some of these schools are great schools, like AIU, and they went another way (a legit way) with their accreditation. The article is misleading. Furthermore, it ruins the reputation of good schools, when people of the digital age believe everything they read on Google/Wikipedia. Reading this article, potential employers will just read "FAKE SCHOOL" and deny good people. btw, this is my first comment, so very sorry if I'm doing something wrong with signing or anything else...
