Nexford is only accredited by ASIC (Nationally Accredited). But if that somehow works for you then they do look to be pretty cheap. If Excelsior accepts their credits, it could be a way to get otherwise difficult-to-find credits for a RA degree at a relatively low cost.

Some of the certificates look very interesting. I don't mind that they're accreditation.

ASIC isn't a U.S. national accreditor though. Did you mistake that for ACICS, Rachel? By the way, ACICS just lost their accreditation powers in the States. https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/educa...510216002/

ASIC accreditation is associated with the UK border agency inspections. Nexford is actually seeking real national accreditation (DEAC) in the U.S. The proper term is institutional accreditation, as the U.S. is moving away from the national vs. regional model. However, the institutional accreditation has not been awarded at this point in time. https://www.deac.org/Public-Notices/Inst...dered.aspx

Wikipedia isn't a serious source, but in this case it is correct: "Qualifications attained in ASIC accreditated schools therefore have no value in respect to UK government recognition. ASIC is an independent company with no formal recognition to accredit or inspect international schools on behalf of the UK government, obtaining an ASIC approved qualification or certificate from one of these international institutions therefore holds no formal recognition in the UK."

Here are the U.S Institutional Accrediting Agencies:

There are many state authorized schools that have international accreditation through ASIC UK, I usually don't recommend anything lesser than NA at the least, I recommend RA instead. For the cost, energy, time you put into the Nationally Accredited degree - you can get a similarly priced one for much more ROI/Value. The only reason I would recommend a NA degree is when it's at the Doctorate level OR in a degree field/vertical that isn't available online/elsewhere for cheap.

You're right, I did get it confused with ACICS! So it's technically not even accredited at all. I do hope that Nexford is able to get DEAC accreditation, then. They do look to have some interesting offerings.

What does this even mean: an American licensed online university?

It means they have a license from a US State (or DC, as in this case) to operate as a university, i.e. enrol students, teach and award degrees which may not have mainstream standing, i.e. USDoE and/or CHEA-recognized accreditation. I don't think the words "online" or "university" require further elaboration.
  
ASIC is meaningless in terms of US accreditation - neither RA nor NA. And yes, Rachel83az got it right, as always - in this case it is ASIC, not ACICS.

I checked and yes, Nexford is on the "institutions to be considered list" at DEAC. If they make it, they will be the first ASIC accredited school to do so, as no US school has yet succeeded in going from ASIC to US NA or RA accreditation. 

I hope they make it. We'll see.

The point was no one speaks like that. Not one school I've ever attended claimed to a licensed university. They speak about their accreditations not licenses. They're not an American anything. Even NA isn't American Accreditation. In most states, colleges have to be licensed to operate in the state, but no one talks about it because that's not what's really important. they wouldn't exist without a license, but that license is meaningless in a business program where you're looking for AACSB or ACBSP. Same with other degrees.
