Accreditation status can give you an indication of a university's general quality and reputation. According to Peterson's, a premier educational resource, by attending a regionally accredited university:
Absolutely. Accreditation by a regional commission that’s recognized by the U.S. Department
of Education is important. It’s your proof that outside evaluators have carefully
reviewed an institution’s programs and policies. Many businesses, school districts,
and other organizations prefer to hire graduates of programs that are regionally
accredited. Regional accreditation also allows you to transfer more easily to other
universities and assures employers that you've earned a credible, respected degree.
Regional accreditation means that WGU’s competency-based programs meet the same
educational standards for performance, integrity, and quality as those found at
other more traditional universities, from large state schools to Ivy League universities.
A team of evaluators representing four associations made on-site visits to WGU over
a period of two years to review WGU’s operations. Based on the reviews and the visiting
team’s report to the accrediting commissions, WGU was granted regional accreditation.
