The World Certification Institute examined the following parameters: course content and duration, teacher qualifications and expertise, financial strength and integrity of course providers, available facilities and resources, delivery and assessment method and most importantly the titles relevance to professional and career development, in line with Selinus University's mission. The WCI Board has recognized that Selinus University's programs of study are up to global educational standards and conferred accreditation.

The Selinus University of Science and Literature is accredited by the USHEAC (United States Higher Education Accreditation Commission).

USHEAC is a non-profit, public benefit NGO in the State of California, USA. It serves as a cohesive entity that brings together higher education accreditation agencies, universities and colleges seeking recognition by the United States Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). USHEAC is a subsidiary of the California University FCE-Amorsolo Foundation Incorporated.

Acceptance by the California Department of Education, the California State Board of Education, the U.S. Department of Education, and several international universities is based on the evaluation of the curricula, academic programmes, and faculty credentials of non-accredited U.S. universities. The evaluation is an integral part of the university's documentation process for applying for regional accreditation, which precedes submission to one of the seven US regional accreditation commissions.

The achievement of accreditation by USHEAC indicates to the public that the Selinus University has met the rigorous quality assurance standards set by the United States Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Crucially, graduates of institutions accredited by the United States Higher Education Accreditation Commission (USHEAC) will receive California University FCE degrees equivalent to US degrees after careful evaluation of the courses. These degrees are comparable in level and purpose to those awarded by regionally accredited universities in the United States of America.

Selinus cooperates with the California University CFE for the issuance of the equivalent degree in the USA.

Thanks to this partnership, a validation procedure of the credits obtained allows Selinus University students to obtain the equivalent US Degree. California University FCE is a unified assessment organization that works in unison with other social service agencies, nonprofit corporations and associations. CUFCE helps US citizens and non-US citizens achieve their American dream.

California University FCE is organized under the Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation Act for public and charitable purposes and is subject to California Franchise Tax Exempt Status. It is registered with the State of California Registrar of Deeds. California University FCE has applied for and been granted a five-year renewable institutional registration by the Registrar of Los Angeles County, California, current registration number: 20100880209. Selinus University graduates can apply to CUFCE to obtain the Dual degree. Please, contact the Secretariat for further information.


Very rarely our students, that are managers, professionals and entrepreneurs, need to obtain licenses or transfer academic credits to/from other institutions; most of the times they already have a degree and are established professionals. However, in the United States, many licensing authorities require accredited degrees as a basis for licensing. In some cases, accredited universities may not accept non-accredited universities degrees for transfer courses and some employers may require an accredited degree as a basis for employment eligibility.

Selinus University respects the specific rules and regulations of each country and does not seek to influence the respective authorities.

In the event that a potential student wishes to enroll at Selinus University in order to access a governmental process of public or state employment using the degree obtained at Selinus University, we recommend that the requirements of such a process are explored in detail with the relevant authorities in one's country to assess whether the degree is useful for one's purposes, as the university does not intervene in such processes.
