About The American University of Barbering Online Program…

AUB  has been approved by the Georgia Secretary of State & The Georgia Board of Cosmetology & Barbering to provide post-secondary education in the State of Georgia.

AUB Accreditation…

Accreditation is the validation of a university’s instructional program by an agency authorized to render an academic evaluation of the institution’s degree granting process.  Accreditation is not generally practiced in countries outside of the United States, since Ministries of education in the various countries regulate their own colleges and universities. In the United States, there are regional accreditation associations, in addition to selected private organizations, which accredit specific subject areas (e.g. business, nursing). There is also a distance learning accreditation association which primarily accredits trade schools and a few regular degree granting correspondence universities.

What is not known to most students is that the United States government does not control or regulate colleges, universities, or accreditation associations except in connection with the reimbursement of tuition fees to students who qualify for these funds. In a general legal sense, therefore, there are no federal enabling laws which allow colleges or accreditation associations to function.  There are only for-profit and non-profit organizations who make their own rules and regulations and who frequently “screen out” institutions of higher learning which are competitive with the larger residence schools in terms of student enrollment.

Another organization recently formed is CHEA, the Council for Higher Education Association. CHEA is also privately operated but wields tremendous power over accreditation in the USA since its board members, who are self-perpetuating, are the heads of large residence schools whose enrollments have steadily dropped since 1996 due to the advent of distance learning. Recently, CHEA put out its first report on distance learning, a report which virtually ignores the dozens of privately owned alternative schools in the USA and which discusses distance learning as a phenomenon which will come to fruition some time in the future. Nothing could be farther from the truth, since it is clear that distance learning is sweeping the globe at an extremely rapid rate.

The American University of Barbering Online will seek professional education accreditation in May of 2017 after two years of operations.  Students, faculty and community will be involved in the accreditation process at that time.
