"To this end, there are 'accrediting groups' that purport to judge the academic credibility of the various schools. SACS is one such group:
http://www.sacscoc.org/principles.asp

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


Not only that, but SACS is now starting to dictate how many "student hours" must go into a class. (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.) They are afraid courses which mean anything other than 2x or 3x a week are shortchanging students and/or signs of being a diploma mill.
