More on the (CSUNY) Open Access Initiative
Our founding principles are based on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights; per article 26, (CSUNY) believes that Higher Education is a Human Right. The University has implemented a paradigm shifting educational model for its academic programs that have allowed it to move closer to this goal through the self-empowerment of its students, decentralization of the learning process, personalized open curriculum design, a sustainable learning modern, developing the 11 core elements of the Human Condition within (CSUNY), and the utilization of the quasi-infinite knowledge through the use of information technology combined with our own capacity to find solutions to all types of global issues, dynamic problems, and those of individuals and multidisciplinary teams. Due to these differentiations and the university’s mission, only a reputable accrediting agency with the vision and plasticity to integrate and adapt its processes around (CSUNY)’s proven and successful innovative programs could be selected. Unfortunately, the vast majority of accrediting agencies adhere to and follow obsolete processes and requirements that have outlived their usefulness and are in direct conflict with the university’s mission of offering a unique, dynamic, affordable, quality higher education to the non-traditional student (one who must work, study what he really needs for professional advancement, attend family issues, etc.).
CENTRAL STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK (CSUNY) is accredited by the
AMERICAN COUNCIL FOR HIGHER AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION (ACHTE) & UNION OF COLLEGES AND TECHNICAL ACADEMIES & ACCREDITATION COMMISSION FOR DISTANCE EDUCATION.
It is internationally renowned quality standard for colleges and universities. It accreditation bodies approved by the Ministerial Department of the Interior Ministry in the United Kingdom & U.S government- Department of State in Delaware .
(CSUNY) meets all state and federal laws as a degree-granting institution in the United States. The University was legally established by corporate charter and is in good standing.
We believe that adopting outdated requirements and processes would impose increased financial burdens on students while severely limiting their opportunities to earn their degree and advance in all aspects. Thus, in selecting the (ACHTE) as its accrediting agency, (CSUNY) ensured that its unique programs would not be transformed into a “copy” or “clone” of those offered by the 10,000+ colleges and universities around the world. Since the (ACHTE) is an international accrediting agency we are required, by Hawaii law RHS446E, to place the following disclaimer despite the worldwide recognition and acceptance of (CSUNY)’s accreditation. CENTRAL STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK (CSUNY) IS NOT ACCREDITED BY AN ACCREDITING AGENCY RECOGNIZED BY THE UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF EDUCATION. Note: In the United States and abroad, many licensing authorities require accredited degrees as the basis for eligibility for licensing. In some cases, accredited colleges may not accept for transfer courses and degrees completed at unaccredited colleges, and some employers may require an accredited degree as a basis for eligibility for employment. Potential students should consider how the above may affect their interests, (CSUNY) respects the unique rules and regulations of each country and does not seek to influence the respective authorities. (CSUNY) has established numerous partnerships, affiliations, and academic exchanges with institutions around the world. Our students can be found in over 200 countries, they actively participate and volunteer in their communities as part of their academic program and have allocated over 100,000 hours of service to diverse causes and initiatives. The degree programs offered by (CSUNY) follow internationally accepted standards followed by academic institutions around the world.
There is no distinction between the programs offered through (CSUNY) and those of traditional campus based programs with regards to the following: program structure, degree issued, transcript, and other graduation documents which follow the same standards used by US colleges and universities. (CSUNY)graduation documents can include an apostille and authentication from the US Department of State to facilitate their use internationally. To see some of our graduates.
