Unisa enjoys full institutional accreditation from the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). The Council
is a non-profit educational association located in Washington, D.C. DETC was founded in 1926 to promote sound educational standards and ethical
business practices in distance education. The independent eleven-member Accrediting Commission of DETC has the approval of the United
States Department of Education as a “nationally recognized accrediting agency” under terms of Public Law. The Council for Higher Education
Accreditation (CHEA) also recognizes the Accrediting Commission. Unisa’s undergraduate, professional and postgraduate degrees up to and
including the Master’s are accredited.

Accreditation is a voluntarily undertaken process by a university seeking to earn the international respect of its peers in higher education. It means
that
     Unisa has been extensively evaluated by distance education experts from South Africa and abroad and has been found to meet or exceed
      rigorous standards for academic excellence, and
     students may be assured of academic quality and institutional integrity when studying at Unisa.
