William Howard Taft University's Doctor of Education program was suspended in 2003 in order for the university to obtain Distance Education and Training Council accreditation. DETC did not accredit doctoral programs at the time. In 2009 when DETC’s scope of authority was expanded to include professional doctorates the program was resumed.[1][2]

Starting in 2006, it offered a Master of Education degree.[3]

Starting in 2010, it offered Doctor of Business Administration and B.S. in Business Administration.[4][5]


On June 7, 2003, William Howard Taft University was awarded accreditation by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC).[6] On July 2, 2013 the Commission voted to extend its accreditation until 2018.
