The accreditation status of a college, university or vocational institution gives you an indication of its quality. Lakewood University is accredited by the DEAC (Distance Education Accrediting Commission) and we are approved by the State Board of Career Colleges and Schools. Lakewood University also holds a Certificate of Authorization from the Ohio Department of Higher Education.
This means that our educational programs are regularly examined by third-party accrediting organizations to ascertain the quality of our curricula, instructional methodology, faculty and administrative policies.
