  1. Their American College Dreams Shattered due to Blacklisted Universities
  2. How to Detect a Blacklisted University, Unaccredited or a Bad Quality College
  3. Scam, Fraud, and Rip-off Reports

There are about 200 American colleges listed as blacklisted or unaccredited colleges by hundreds of media.  You may be jailed and deported if you try to enter or have entered the U.S. with their admissions documents.     Be aware of the impact what an unaccredited school’s admissions documents can do to you.   How do you know if a school is legitimately accredited or not?

Below is what’s on the U.S. Department of Education’s website:

The Department of Education is making available a searchable database of postsecondary institutions and programs accredited by accrediting agencies or state approval agencies recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education. This database includes approximately 6,900 postsecondary educational institutions and programs.

Usually, an unaccredited school cannot be found on the website of the U.S. Department of Education.   However, they still operate like legitimate schools and grant degrees.   Their website may look fancy and their accreditations may sound legitimate.  Just remember ONE IMPORTANT RULE

“IF A U.S. COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY CANNOT BE FOUND ON THE WEBSITE OF THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, IT IS NOT ACCREDITED by the U.S. federal government.”

There are several risks if you attend an unaccredited school.  One of the major risks is that it may affect your employment opportunities. Below is the list of unaccredited U.S. schools.
