This book is basically a straight list of American colleges and universities by state and in alphabetical order. There is a list of colleges with religious affiliations.
I cover accrediting agencies, fake college degree diploma mills, college rankings, private colleges, colleges based on demographics like minority and gender.
I list some of the many websites out there that claim to list American colleges. The problem with most of them is that they either give you one college at a time, try to push their advertising sponsor colleges at you or they’re otherwise junky.
Accreditation is the process of quality assurance for schools and colleges. A higher education authority than the colleges examines them to determine whether they pass their standards of education. This is done to ensure that graduates meet the professional requirements of the profession they're studying.
