What does "accredited" mean?


There are clearly two distinct meanings to the word “accredited” as it relates to the evaluation of your credentials with the Illinois Board of Examiners.   The primary meaning of accredited means that a college or university is accredited by a regional accrediting body and for credit to be recognized by the Board of Examiners, a college or university must be regionally accredited.

The second meaning of accredited refers to accreditation by either the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) or the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).  If your graduate program is accredited by either of these two accrediting bodies, additional credit will be counted for each semester hour of accounting coursework.
