Directory of Accredited Adult Continuing Education Programs
Online Makes Finding Schools Safer, Easi
It seems like so many people these days are interesting in going
back to school to further their careers, but are nervous about
the validity of the degree they might earn. Two leading
education organizations have solved this problem by creating
UCEAdirectory.org (http://www.UCEAdirectory.org), a free,
informative directory of accredited adult continuing education
The site was created by the University Continuing Education
Association (UCEA) and Educational Directories Unlimited, Inc.
(EDU) to provide students with access to a trustworthy array of
on-campus and online associate, baccalaureate, graduate and
"UCEA works with its member institutions to increase access to
high quality continuing education programs for all students,"
says Roger Whitaker, UCEA president and dean of the College of
Professional Studies at The George Washington University.
"UCEAdirectory.org will help us further this mission by
providing a trusted resource for prospective students to locate
credible programs that meet their interests."
The goal of this accredited adult continuing education programs
online directory is to ease the often arduous process of finding
the ideal program by offering vital information on schools that
have earned the highest level of accreditation. This means that
it has been certified as acceptable by one of the six
nationally-recognized accrediting organizations in the country,
-Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools -New England
Association of Schools and Colleges -North Central Association
of Colleges and Schools -Northwest Commission on Colleges and
Universities -Western Association of Schools and Colleges
-Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (www.msche.org)
"This is an exciting time for continuing one's education because
there are so many options available," says Lori Faunce,
UCEAdirectory.org manager. "The trick is in finding the right
school with the right opportunity that will offer the right
degree. We hope UCEAdirectory.org will make this task easier,
and that potential students who come to the site will feel
secure knowing that every program has earned the highest level
of accreditation available."
To insure fairness, every UCEA member can have its programs
listed on UCEAdirectory.org for free, creating an extensive
collection of continuing education programs.
If you are interested in earning a solid education you should go
to http://www.UCEAdirectory.org. Once there, you can search via
degree level, format, subject and, if applicable, zip code, and
this new accredited adult continuing education programs online
directory will also offer helpful advice. The most important
element of the website, however, is its directory of
regionally-accredited programs offered by UCEA members.
Over 17 million American adults are currently continuing their
education. The decision to join them should be exciting, not
