Is a degree through Verity College Education accredited?

Yes. While Verity itself does not offer degrees, students earn their fully-accredited B.A. or B.S. degrees through the regionally-accredited Thomas Edison State College. Regional accreditation is the highest and most esteemed level of accreditation. Verity has an association with Thomas Edison which provides in-state tuition rates to Verity students.

How does Verity College Education work?

Verity helps the student navigate through their degree with biblical education services, degree support, education discounts, and other services. For the student’s general education credits (and some core requirements), Verity offers classes, study aids, and other materials.

Students earn their college credit through testing, correspondence courses, and portfolios. The education schedule can be built around the students’ needs or according to the Verity two-week modular program. At the end of each module, students take a college-level test in the Verity testing center (for Campus Experience students) or at a local testing center (for Distance Learning and Adult Learning students). After the student has collected enough credits, they can then be transferred to the college of their choosing, saving them thousands of dollars.
