Apparently this school is not yet accredited:
That does not necessarily mean that it is a scam, but it does mean that an accredited school is not likely to accept credits earned at a nonaccredited school.
The concern with non accreditation is summarized below:
3. Does it matter whether my degree is from an accredited school or program?
In general, there are three major practical implications for students of receiving a public health graduate degree from a non-accredited institution:
- Some employment is only open to graduates of CEPH-accredited public health schools or programs. The US Public Health Service, many US military public health jobs and some state and local government agencies require that MPH-level jobs be filled with graduates of CEPH-accredited schools and programs. If you have an idea of the area or agency where you would like to work after graduation, you should speak to a human resources officer if you have additional questions.
- Some fellowships are only available to students attending CEPH-accredited schools and programs that are also members of the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH). Not all CEPH-accredited programs are members of ASPPH. If these fellowships are of interest to you visit www.aspph.org for more information.
- The National Board of Public Health Examiners, the body for the national credentialing exam for individuals who possess a graduate-level degree in public health, offers the exam only to graduates of accredited programs and schools. NBPHE is not affiliated with CEPH, and CEPH does not have a formal role in shaping the eligibility or other rules. http://ceph.org/constituents/students/faqs/#
that is re: a public health degree, but the same concerns apply across all lines of employment/careers; so it is a personal decision to attend a school that is not accredited.
