What is Accreditation?

 

What Learning Institutions’ Accreditation is Actually About

The U.S. Department of Education does not accredit educational institutions or programs. The United States has no Federal Ministry of Education or other centralized authority exercising single national control over post secondary educational institutions in the country. In general, institutions of higher education are permitted to operate with considerable independence and autonomy. American educational institutions can vary widely in the character and quality of their programs. The reputation of a university truly depends on the content of curriculum material, reputation and the quality of its graduates.

 

Accreditation is Optional for All Colleges and Universities

Imagine Spirit is not an accredited school at this time. We do, however, offer valid certification for programs and short courses.

 

Then What is Certification and How Will it Benefit Me?

Certification implies study and mastery of certain subjects. Becoming certified in a particular field offers one credibility and helps to promote peace of mind for the prospective client or student of a certified practitioner. It is not, however, considered a college degree.

 

Transfer Of Credits or Degrees

No credits, including Bachelors or Masters degrees from other colleges, count toward Imagine Spirits certification requirements. *Certification is currently being offered in Mediumship, Pathways to Clairvoyance, Tarot, and The Akashic Records only.
