"To this end, there are 'accrediting groups' that purport to judge the academic credibility of the various schools. SACS is one such group:

The 'credibility' of the professors is ONLY based on the degree, and the courses taken to fulfill that degree.

(Student hours is the sum of: hours spent in class; hours spent on homework; hours spent on projects/papers; hours spent on out of class activities.)
