Accreditation is the process by which institutions of higher education are evaluated and qualified as such. There are various bodies that accredit universities in the United States.
Wikiversity does not confer academically accredited degrees, diplomas, certificates, titles, etc. The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees has directed the Wikiversity community away from accreditation. See the feedback from the Board on the original Wikiversity project proposal.
