At present, George Wythe University is not accredited by a regional or national accrediting agency. GWU is currently pursuing accreditation of its on-campus undergraduate program, and fully intends to accredit all programs as soon as possible thereafter. Meanwhile, our alumni still regularly gain admittance to law school and other graduate programs

George Wythe University is registered under the Utah Postsecondary Proprietary School Act (Title 13, Chapter 34, Utah Code).

Registration under the Utah Postsecondary Proprietary School Act does not mean that the State of Utah supervises, recommends, or accredits the institution. It is the student's responsibility to determine whether credits, degrees, or certificates from the institution will transfer to other institutions or meet employers' training requirements. This may be done by calling the prospective school or employer.

Progress Toward Accreditation

The institutional review process toward accreditation includes documentation of procedures, programs, curriculum and operations over a period of time. This ongoing process includes several site visits and a number of these have now occurred.

The accrediting agency we have chosen is the American Academy for Liberal Education (AALE) in Washington D.C.  AALE is a national accreditation agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Click here to view the Department’s list of all recognized accrediting agencies. The fact that George Wythe University is advancing in this process should not be construed as a statement or assurance that accreditation will, in fact, be granted.

Until accreditation is awarded, it is obligatory that we note this information about accreditation as published on the U.S. Department of Education website.

“The fact that a college or postsecondary institution is accredited does not guarantee that credits or degrees earned at that institution will transfer to another institution or be recognized by a potential employer. Acceptance of students or graduates is always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer. For these reasons, besides ascertaining the accredited status of a school or program, students should take additional measures to determine, prior to enrollment, whether or not their educational goals will be met through attendance at a particular institution. These measures should include inquiries to any institutions to which the student might be interested in transferring, or to prospective employers and, if possible, personal inspection of the institution at which enrollment is contemplated.” [Source: U.S. Department of Education Website]
