Abraham Lincoln University Accredited by the DETC Accrediting Commission
January 14, 2011 – On behalf of the Abraham Lincoln University faculty and staff, it is a pleasure to announce that the university is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council. The Accrediting Commission is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency and is a recognized member of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
The Accrediting Commission is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education to accredit distance education institutions. The Commission is listed (and has been since 1959) by the U.S. Department of Education as a "nationally recognized accrediting agency." Like regional accrediting agencies, the Accrediting Commission is reviewed periodically by the USDE to make certain that it meets the criteria for federal recognition as published in Title 34 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
The Accrediting Commission is a charter member of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), the leading non-governmental recognition for accrediting associations. The Commission’s recognition by CHEA was renewed in 2001 for ten years. A national advocate and institutional voice for self-regulation of academic quality through accreditation, CHEA is an association of 3,000 degree-granting colleges and universities and recognizes 60 institutional and programmatic accrediting organizations.
ALU also continues to be registered with the Committee of Bar Examiners (CBE) of the State Bar of California. Its degree-granting authority in connection with students qualifying to take the California Bar examinations and obtaining admission to the practice of law in California is based on its registration with the Committee of Bar Examiners. Student enrolled in the J.D. degree program at this law school who successfully complete the first year of law study must pass the First-Year Law Students’ Examination as part of the CBE requirements to qualify to take the California Bar Examination.
