    My son will be moving to the US in the next few months and is interested in taking this course. He has both a US and Philippine citizenship so I was wondering if you envisage any issues once he takes your course and become accredited? Thanks so much.

    Eastern Kentucky University is regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS*). This regional accrediting body is recognized by both the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA**) and the United States Department of Education (USDE).

    Regional accreditation is a measurement the US Department of Education uses to ensure that schools meet rigorous and up-to-date standards of education and professionalism. All schools must be accredited, and their curriculum must pass approval with a USDE-approved accreditation board. Because of more defined regional accreditation educational standards, credits for similar courses will usually transfer between schools.
