Degree Mills

A Degree mill is an unlicensed higher education institution that offers illegitimate academic degrees and diplomas for a fee. These degrees may claim to give credit for relevant life experience, but should not be confused with legitimate prior learning assessment programs. They may also claim to evaluate work history or require submission of a thesis or dissertation for evaluation to give an appearance of authenticity. Degree mills are frequently supported by Accreditation mills, set up for the purpose of providing an appearance of authenticity. The term may also be used pejoratively to describe an accredited institution with low academic admission standards and a low job placement rate. An individual may or may not be aware that the degree they have obtained is not wholly legitimate. In either case, legal issues can arise if the qualification is used in résumés.

 

*Disclaimer: Many Degree Mills have names very similar (and sometimes the same) to genuine universities in other countries. Just because a university name appears on the lists below does not mean there isn't an accredited university of the same name.

 

Prospective students therefore should not accept or reject a university just because its name appears on a list provided by Unidegree.com, which takes no responsibility for prospective student actions due to the publication of the following lists.

 

Unidegree.com would welcome communication from universities whose names appear in these lists and are either genuinely accredited, or have been misclassified, and it will be happy to revise the list once the error is confirmed.

 

Students should ask a university the following questions before making their choice of an education:

 

  • Does the university provide an address of a campus location (many Degree Mills have only PO Boxes or mailing addresses)?

 

  • If the university states that it is an online university, does it clearly provide its authority (licence) to issue degrees?

 

  • If a campus location is given, do they have students at that campus? If so, how many? Do not be afraid of asking such questions.

 

  • Is the university a private university?Does the university have license or accreditation to issue degrees? Who has provided this license or accreditation? Is the licensing or accrediting agency recognised by a government authority?

 

  • Is the university claiming to give degree purely for "Life Experience" without any formal coursework? Some students may actually want such an institution, but should be vary that degrees from such institutions may not carry much weight.
