the opportunity
Adam Smith University is primarily an assessment program designed to measure what has already been learned by the student rather than to teach, although independent study and other distance learning opportunities such as correspondence education are provided where necessary to enable a student to complete the degree program needed by the student.
Many accredited institutions at the post secondary level provide courses and programs at various degree levels that are worthy of recognition for academic degrees. Some or all of such institutions in many states are unable to offer degrees to those who successfully complete their programs even though the institution has earned accreditation from an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Adam Smith University can award degrees to students who have completed such recognized programs at accredited institutions of postcondition education.
Students also may have relocated from one area of the country to another and have found difficulty in having their credits from one institution accepted at another. Adam Smith University can assemble credits from several accredited institutions to enable a student to earn a degree without losing credit through transfer.
Government Recognition and Accreditation
Adam Smith University was founded in 1991. In France, Adam Smith University is an association designated by the French National Ministry of Education as a private institution of Higher Education by correspondence under the Law of 12 July 1875 and under the Decree of 25 January 1876 to offer higher education to national and international students. In France, Adam Smith University is registered as a non-profit association under the Law of 1 July 1901. Adam Smith University is incorporated in the United States of America in several jurisdictions.
Recognition of ASU in France is recognition of the quality and standards maintained by Adam Smith University.
Recognition in countries such as France and agencies of the United Nations may not help graduates of ASU in the United States of America or in some other countries for a licensed profession such as accounting, law or nursing and it may not help anyone obtain a teaching credential in the USA or in some other countries.
The French registration of Adam Smith University may be helpful in gaining recognition of your ASU degree in European and other countries that accept French registration of universities. Since ASU is not accredited by a recognized accrediting agency or association recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education, regionally accredited colleges and universities in the United States may not accept your degree or credits from ASU for transfer purposes or for admission. Please check with universities you hope to attend in the future before enrolling in ASU.
Registration of Adam Smith University in France and recognition of ASU by several agencies of the United Nations are recognition of the quality and standards maintained by Adam Smith University.
