Brandeis GPS was accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) in 2006. The NEASC Commission commended GPS on the quality of its online programs, on the uniform content and quality between online and classroom-based courses of the same course title, and on the attention given to advising and support for students enrolled in online courses.

Many online degrees at other institutions lack accreditation. We’re proud to say that all programs at Brandeis University Graduate Professional Studies are accredited.

For more information, contact NEASC directly.
