In the US accreditation is a voluntary process and each college or university may decide for itself which accreditation is appropriate and necessary to accomplish its educational mission; it could be National, Regional, State, or Private Accreditation.  Not all universities need National, Regional, or State accreditations to operate. Government Accreditation is only mandatory for those universities that seek Federal Government educational funding. In the United States of America, we have a number of independent private accreditation agencies that grant accreditation. All of these accreditation agencies hold online educational institutions and distance learning programs to the same high standards that are held by the traditional.

Prowess University or any of its degree programs are not accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE).

Prowess University strongly advises interested applicants to consult with licensing authorities, prospective employees, professional associations, government agencies, colleges, and universities to determine with clarity if the study program will meet their requirements before undertaking any program of studies with them.
