Accredited with the International Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities from Antwerp, Belgium.

(IASCU is a non-U.S. Department of Education recognized agency.)

"Accreditation does not provide automatic acceptance by an institution of credit earned at another institution, nor does it give assurance of acceptance of graduates by employers. Acceptance of students or graduates is always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer. For these reasons, besides ascertaining the accredited status of a school or program, students should take additional measures to determine, prior to enrollment, whether or not their educational goals will be met through attendance at a particular institution. These measures should include inquiries to institutions to which transfer might be desired or to prospective employers and, if possible, personal inspection of the institution at which enrollment is contemplated." ( U.S. Department of Education, "Accreditation in the United States",

Who Will Take Vision Credits?

We have contacted a number of schools asking about their policy regarding the transfer of credits from Vision into their programs. Students wanting to transfer to another school in order to pursue studies and degrees that are not offered at Vision are encouraged to contact the school of schools that they may wish to attend and ask for their specific policy and the acceptability of Vision. All schools have their own policy and can accept transfer credits from whomever they choose.

The following schools are a sample of what students can expect. There is never a guarantee that all credits from all schools will be accepted.
