1. If you STUDY (not just read!) THIS SITE, you will not ask that question!
2. EVERYONE who matters! WAY MORE places that MATTER than "degree" granting, regionally accredited colleges!
3. The only exception are degree-granting, regional universities. Your certs are NOT "accredited" for "credit" or to transfer to a "traditional" college, whose degrees are worth less than the paper they are printed on! We do not and will not support hundreds of thousands spent on credentials that are worthless, as are most colleges and universities today, from an employment, income, new business, trade, skill, professional association exam or body of knowledge standpoint.
PSU is a vocational and trade school and is trade accredited, NOT "regionally" accredited for transfer of credits. NOTE: Even regionally accredited online schools are NOT supported for credit transfer, teaching positions, etc. even at the PhD level by "brick and mortar" schools who are JUST AS SNOOTY and negative about regional onlines as vocational schools!
That's probably because when you finish here for a couple hundred dollars, you make thousands as your own boss, and when you finish there, after paying $300,000 plus, you flip burgers at your local Mickey D's!
Even though PSU is not regionally "accredited" like traditional brick and mortar schools, YOUR PSU CREDENTIALS, ASSOCIATION MEMBERSHIPS AND CERTS ARE ACCEPTED at FAR MORE places than a traditional accredited school! If you go to the NUMBER ONE LEADING online accredited university (regionally, with credits that transfer), your $70,000 "PhD" will NOT even allow you to teach at a JUNIOR COLLEGE!!! WHO is the RIP OFF HERE????
4. See far below and the VENDOR page if you run into someone who refuses to recognize you-- we CAN and WILL help! With 10,000 grads a month, we have CLOUT with the vendors you call!
SPECIFIC EXAMPLES BELOW of those who routinely accept our grad's credentials, certifications, IDs, association memberships and skills:
-- The US COURT SYSTEM, who have accepted our grads as expert witnesses in ballistics, reloading, pastoral counseling, animation, instructional design, gunsmithing, security, locksmithing, medical coding, electronics, algorithms, patents, circuits, programs, combat, criminal justice, court investigation, firearms trainers, background screening, recruiting, bodyguards, and ALL the other fields listed at the bottom of EVERY page on this site.
-- THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND FEDERAL COURT SYSTEM. One of our bladesmith grads was detained for possessing a switchblade in the City of New York. When he presented his PSU Bladesmith certification and AABLA membership, the judge ruled that he was a manufacturing artist and an exception to the terrible NY rules. Imagine if he'd shown the judge his Masters from Harvard-- he'd have a $40,000 legal bill, trial, or be in JAIL!
-- ALL TRADE VENDORS in every field listed at the bottom of every page, for wholesale accounts and purchases within your field. We have worked for over 40 years to build our NETWORK of vendors, all of whom accept our grad's credentials. IF a vendor will not accept your cert, we will either communicate with them on your behalf (see THIS page), and if they still refuse to accept you, will either stop referring our grads to them, or sue them, or both, depending on the reasons they have given you. We need SPECIFIC examples in writing of this refusal, via email or letter.
-- The DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE-- all our courses are SCORM compliant for defense contracts and certifications and many of our grads have won numerous contracts in many fields.
-- ATF-- For our reloading, firearms training, bodyguard, gunsmithing, range, manufacturing, etc. professionals. Our grads have been told they are the "best prepared applicants we've ever seen" by many branch offices. Examiners vary by region, and this field is undergoing major change right now-- apply SOON if this is a path you seek! We have WALLS of thank you letters from our successful new dealers and trade pros. Our Gunsmithing, Reloading, Bodyguard, Background Investigator, FFL Prep, Firearms Instructor and many other credentials are used daily to secure hours by appointment with ATF and prove technical competency and professional status, especially since association membership is included with nearly all technically oriented credentials! These regs are changing greatly now, so apply soon!
-- STATE governments, who have held that the financial training, for example, of our pastoral counselors for debt, mortgage, family and other counseling meets all requirements for business licensure.
-- CITY governments, who routinely issue our grads business licenses in ALL the fields (and many other specialties beneath them) listed at the bottom of every page on this site.
-- INSURERS, who routinely underwrite our BONDS as well as our grad's businesses. One example is BICAA, which is the ONLY association that insurers accept other than ISSA and ACE for combat, boxing, knife combat, martial arts and other instructors to teach at gyms and health clubs. You can save over $5,000 a year with this benefit alone. This benefit has SAVED businesses that otherwise could NOT be insured!
-- ROYALTY PAYORS, Click HERE for our exciting new 2013 partnership with PayRoy.com for PSU grads ONLY!
-- CUSTOMERS-- Who want to be sure you are skilled in your primary and specialty areas.
-- STUDENTS-- Who you certify with your own training programs, and through PSU with our grad co-certification programs! Our Agency level programs literally put YOU in this business.
-- ASSOCIATIONS-- Who are the top Body of Knowledge creators, certifiers, membership validating organizations worldwide. We DO NOT offer credentialing unless and until our courses are accepted by EVERY association that is at the top of their field in Body of Knowledge certification, testing, exams, conventions, publications, research and all the other criteria of IABOK-- the body of knowledge certification standard for associations worldwide. Have you put YOUR Association initials after your name on your business card? Why not!!??
After a PhD in, say, computer science, finance, actuarial science, security, etc. graduates from a "traditional" accredited school, she CANNOT get a JOB or start a COMPANY until she PASSES "Body of Knowledge" exams like Microsoft certification, at least three actuarial exams, Series 7 for stockbrokers, ASLPA for locksmiths, etc. WE TRAIN FOR THOSE EXAMS AND OUR GRADS PASS!
Even AFTER the PhD, if it was online, the "accredited" grads credentials won't even let her teach at many HIGH SCHOOLS if her PhD was ONLINE-- accedited or not!!! What a sham and shame after she paid over 60 grand for it!!!
-- EMPLOYERS-- Although 99% of our grads come here to start their own business, we support all employment requests as well.
-- VENTURE INVESTORS-- We have the largest pool of lenders, investors and venture capital equity funders of ANY school. Thousands of our grads have received trade credit, vendor financing, and venture equity and loans for nearly half a century. Our grads have become millionaires for their patents, web businesses, schools, products, inventions, books, courses, designs, artwork, animations, discoveries, engineering, scripts, movies, documentaries, research, developments, databases, circuits, formulas, equations, images, wikis, blogs, codes, hacks, sploits, locks, forensics, software, programs, algorithms, chips, systems, architecture, pet care, innovations, tutorials, TOOLS, reviews, articles, papers, machines, equipment, journals, conferences, shows, predictions... and thousands of other contributions, skills, products and services!
-- PARTNERS AND CONSUMERS-- PSU has established, over 50 years, the largest referral NETWORK of products and services for partnering business to business as well as to consumers. Your PSU credentials are accepted at hundreds of these networks, unlike ANY of the accredited, regional, online or brick and mortar colleges!
EVERY grad who wishes to participate is listed in hundreds of these referral networks immediately. These provide both CORPORATE and BUSINESS partners and customers as well as consumers-- as local as online yellow pages and as global as international business projects and contracts. Just a few include: Blade Artists, Patent Submissions, Gunsmithing Tools, Combat Franchises, Background Investigation Databases, Recruiter Networks, Digital Artists, Reloaders, FFLs, Retailers, Online ClassPros, Medical Researchers, Counselors, Consultants, Teachers... literally at least ONE PROFESSIONAL network in EVERY field listed at the bottom of every page on this site!
QUESTION: WHAT IF I stumble upon someone who won't accept my credentials?
ANSWER: FIRST, REFER them to this vendor link. NEXT, TELL US about them. We will, first, encourage them to accept the tens of thousands of grads we can refer to them. Finally, if they have used any kind of hearsay, slander, etc. we will take legal action on your behalf. Most complaints and criticism you will find of ANY organization (and ALL get them!) are from cowards who don't know what they are talking about, and refuse to sign their names, or live in other countries, particularly Russia, where many of the complaint sites reside!
There also are fake "reputation" companies, and complaint companies (several in Romania) who trash talk ALL internet providers (yes, INCLUDING Harvard!) with "general" statements about acceptability or accreditation, then try to extort money to "fix" your reputation! These are from cowards who won't sign their name (they know we will sue them if they do), with vague and general comments. SHOW US the specifics, and we'll be sure you are accepted! A few grads refuse to take the STEPS needed to complete their skills and training, or start their company-- SOME of what is accepted IS up to you!
YOU HAVE TO HELP! Acceptance is also about you-- your business plan, niches, and execution thereof. We can give you the skills and TOOLS for success, but can't do it FOR you! Our grads are the most successful in the world-- to THEIR credit!!
FACTS, in addition to the powerful referral networks below:
1. The leading online school in the world costs an average of $50,000, yet only 29% of enrollees graduate and are certified! How do you define a CRIME?? (Source: Fox News)
2. PSU certifies 100% of our students. If you fail, we work with you until you pass!
3. NO other online school includes all texts, tools, after graduation support, etc. We've had the highest rating of any "correspondence" school since 1971, and the highest rating of any online trade school since 1989.
4. Your PSU Credentials are accepted at MORE PLACES than any other online school OR any accredited brick and mortar school!
