A list of recognized accrediting bodies in the US can be found at http://www2.ed.gov/admins/finaid/acc...allyRecognized

Here is a list of (official-sounding, but) non-recognized accrediting bodies... http://www.geteducated.com/diploma-m...-accreditation
This was very helpful. I am considering an online MBA in Project Management and have narrowed my choices down to two; Grantham University and Norwich. I did see the accrediting body that Grantham claims on the ED.gov site, so that is a good thing. One question I have as far as accredidation goes is I was always under the assumption that if a student uses either tuition assistance or VA benefits, the school must be accredited. Is that not the case?
