Acreditation and Credit Transfer

Accreditation: Broward College is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Atlanta, Georgia. In the United States, accreditation is awarded by independent organizations that are created specifically to review higher education institutions and their programs. These accrediting bodies are reviewed for quality by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and the United States Department of Education.

The accreditation process guarantees the review of a school’s faculty expertise and academic credentials, academic resources, recruiting practices, admissions procedures, course contents, technology, student counseling and assistance, financial stability and much more. Influenced and affected by the role of accreditation teams, all U.S. colleges and universities are accountable for continually working to improve the quality and results of the education they provide.

Credit Transfer: To transfer credits to a U.S. accredited school, your credits must also come from a U.S accredited college or university. If your institution is not accredited in the U.S., your academic history must go through a review and, most likely, only a few of your credits will be transferable to a U.S. college or university. There are several agencies authorized to perform evaluations, including World Education Services for International Credential Evaluation (, J. Silny Foreign Credential Evaluation and Translation ( for more information.

Job Placement: Companies often look for proof that applicants have received their diplomas from an accredited higher education institution. The greatest competitive advantage we have would be that we are the only accredited American university in Tunisia. Another advantage we offer our students is the opportunity to earn American degrees in your home country without traveling to the USA with a fraction of the costs paid by students who pursue their studies in the USA.
