Accreditation for Roger Williams University via New England Commission of Higher Education is Regional Accreditation, which is the highest and oldest level of academic accreditation in the U.S.

There are "national" and "on-line" accreditation labels that are less accepted nationwide, and thus cause some students challenges in trying to transfer academic credits from these schools with lower accreditation levels.

There are six regional accrediting organizations in the U.S. that review degree-granting nonprofit and for-profit institutions within their regions. Roger Williams University is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE).

Accreditation and Transferring Credits

The majority of students enrolled in our Distance Calculus courses are taking these courses through Roger Williams University, and transferring the earned credits to their home institutions.

Please see the Tranferring Credits page for more information on this process.

Nearly all colleges and universities in the U.S. have a process for their students to transfer credits into their institution - often called Articulation. There is usually a form (either online or a PDF) for students to complete that asks their college or university for permission to engage in a transfer course. Usually the main question these colleges and universities have is: is the planned transfer course being completed at an accredited college or university?.

Even with answer to this question as "yes" for Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University courses being an accredited institution of higher learning, this does not completely answer the question of transferability of credits. It can be the case that your particular major or department does not want you to take courses outside of their department - no matter where that is. It can be the case that your major or department does not approve of online courses as a rule (the quality of online courses vary in quality and rigor). These are the important reasons you need to ask for permission from your college or university, which may include asking for permission from your major or department. Ask your academic advisor for advice on your academic plan.
