Good Morning all, Please can someone investigate and respond if this is a genuine online university? It's called "Mcford University, USA. This would help all those students who have been somehow not happy with the way this entity goes about doing educational business. Thank you all, please reply with tangent feedbacks and information.

Thanks for your question!

McFord University claims accreditation from the International Bureau for Online Education Accreditation (IBOEA).

This agency is NOT recognized in the USA to award degrees either online or through a campus.

For an online college or university in the USA to be considered "legitimate" it needs to be accredited by an agency that is recognized by the United States Department of Education or the Council on Higher Education Accreditation, CHEA.

Consult this list of unrecognized online college accreditation mills when vetting potential schools.

We would not recommend attending any online college that lacks recognized accreditation.
