Kudos to the DHS! This is what the US government should be doing, instead of creating faux universities (exhibit A: University of Northern New Jersey) and entrapping people. They have plenty of work on their hands with existing institutions, including those that are “officially accredited” (read nationally accredited) and unaccredited but authorized to issue I-20s.
California South Bay University (CSBU) is one rogue provider that knows the value of regional accreditation as the gold standard of institutional accreditation in the US. Perhaps it’s a long-term goal or a dream but it’s certainly not yet a reality. It added it to its website, even though it’s a bald-faced lie. Go to the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) database and do a search for CSBU. Let me know what you find out. This is the result I got:
