Doral College is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC) to award an Associate in Arts degree. DEAC is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a recognized accrediting agency. The Distance Education Accrediting Commission is also recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
Doral College is also licensed by the Commission for Independent Education (CIE) in the State of Florida, and is approved by the state to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA). NC-SARA centralizes the authorization process for each institution in a single state called the institution’s “home state.” Colleges or universities in a SARA state therefore only need their home state authorization to offer distance education to any other SARA member state.
