By applying documented life experiences to your credit hours, and working at your own pace, you're able to complete any level degree you choose in a window of time you're most comfortable with.

The school has been deemed a diploma mill and its sad because they offered traditional degrees as well as life expereince degrees for only 3 years. They are ACCREDITED by a WW recognized institution the same as University of Pheonix and Capella, etc. etc. All of these on-line schools had troble in the 90's through to 2002 when ALL of them stopped issuing degrees because of lawsuits, accredite -worthiness of the degrees. ALL of the Diploma mill degrees state "LIFE ACHIEVEMENT DEGREE". They are not traditional degrees, however they are stated on the transcripts. Suffield opened up again in 2013 after winning accrediation and seems like they are striving to keep records accurate. It was only a matter of time for the Suffield team to recognize the error and fix it. Its is now operating clean and have no scelatons in the closet.!! We only hope the rest learn from the mistakes of the other 212 schools that attempted to be something that they were not. Yes, Suffield University ois accredited, ignore all the petty disclaimers, they are legitimate. posted Oct 30th, 2014 4:54 pm

I spent alot of money taking undergraduate courses. I jumped at the opportunity to receive a Suffield Bachelors of Science upon expert evaluation of my matriculated college credits and job experience. Now i am reading articles the degree received is not valid degree. I realised there might be some discrepancies but illegal in some states was not one. Also, I could never find a physical address can you provide this information? posted Apr 17th, 2010 12:07 am

Accredited schools are based upon training in a classroom setting with instructions given by a professor having a Masters or Doctorate degree from an accredited university. However, in my 40 years of business experience I have never seen one CEO or COO hired because he had college degree. Businesses look at the degree as a building block approach for junior to middle management. Upper level managementposition look for years of successful experience in the field, not time spent in a classroom. Ask any first year teacher where they learned the most about teaching and they will tell you that their first year in the classroom with kids far exceeded the learning from the institution. Institutional learning has its benefits, but no one wants a doctor that did not complete their internship, or a pilot that just completed ground training in a simulator. Learning occurs in many environments and should not be limited to a brick and motor format. If our society were more advanced we would provide more degrees for "real world life learning experiences". However, the eductional unions of our society will continue to deiscredit any learning process that does not come from their mold. There are a lot of very intelligent people working in all fields that do not have degrees but can perform their jobs better than many that have degrees. So I feel that there should be accredited systems to grant people degrees for their real life learning experiences. posted Jan 11th, 2010 10:21 am




First, thank you for an informative and very useful website.

I left school a very long time ago (early 60's) , worked for employers up until around 30 years ago, when I had the opportunity to manage and improve a business without interference from the company owners.

Since then I have developed/managed/owned many businesses, saved failing/failed businesses, operated concert/entertainment venues and hired/promoted many entertainers, some of which were, and still are household names, took over companies that I previously worked for, reconstructed and renovated a number of buildings including classic historic buildings and currently operate a very successful respected business with over 70 trained staff, I consider myself very fortunate to have enjoyed an incredibly interesting and fruitful career.

In short, I've been there, done it, got the T shirt and have proven my abilities beyond all doubt, does this mean that some youngster who does 4 years of classroom study, while spending most of their free time and possibly some study time, half p*ssed, (I used to run university nights in our venues, and have employed hundreds of students, so I do know!) without practical experience of the real hard world they have been shielded from, should be judged as having a higher status and employability factor than someone like me.

L.E degrees can be an excellent way to evaluate someone's actual life achievements and proven ability and as I actually vet and employ professionals, I would certainly not dismiss them simply because they presented an L.E degree, essentially that is an evaluation of what they have actually achieved, rather than the hope that a student with a traditional degree, but no experience, might be able to perform the job properly.

After scrutinising many distance learning sites, I made a decision to submit my details to an L.E degree provider and have been accepted by Suffield, I must commend them on a professional and courteous service, the package I received was professionally presented and completely satisfactory.

It did not take me 15 days to earn this degree, it took 40 years of damned hard work and proven ability, what Suffield did was assess the value and knowledge gained over 40 years and applied it as college credits.

In my case, I do not and never will, need a degree for employment, but the L.E degree will at least provide a reminder to consider my own achievements as worthwhile.

Decent quality organisations like Suffield University are providing a valuable contribution in recognising achievement, after proven ability in the respective field has been demonstrated and in years to come may be seen as frontrunners, in area that Traditional Universities have been woefully slow to recognise or capitalise on.


(I would appreciate it if my name & e mail is kept confidential)

Along with local college credits, business training, and work experience I was able to earn my degree in business. My old boss knew of my frustration in not being able to finish my college degree in the late 80’s due to a demanding work schedule so he suggested Suffield. I made contact and continued both the college and business education earning my degree in business. Some companies did not accepted my degree, but working for some fortune 500 companies have. posted Oct 26th, 2009 7:45 am

For us older folks this a great way to work on a level playing field.

However, when you do enter any degree program such as this, you better know your stuff to honor this award.

My dentist went to Suffield Medical School and says that it was the smartest thing he has ever done. He told them that he had teeth in his mouth for decades and they applied this experience toward his M.D. Degree so that he was able to obtain it in only 15 days!!! posted May 28th, 2009 2:16 pm



I like the program. I have over (35) years experience in my field and I feel that the combination of my college credits plus the practical working experience I was able to gain over the years more than qualifies me for all of my degrees (BS, MA & PhD) in my area of expertise. Thank you Suffield University. posted May 24th, 2009 12:07 pm

We are always looking to hire qualified people, and pulling a degree like this out of their attache case is wonderful -- it sends a clear message about the respect that the applicant has for education, and the great lengths he or she will go to to show that they have the technical skill required to compete.

But, I think $550 might be way overpriced for the value. You can do even better! I have several doctorates with a lot more weight than this. One of them is stylishly written in crayon (four different colors!) and says "I luv u daddie" on the bottom. posted May 19th, 2009 10:27 am

How many days does it need to get the degree from suffield? posted Apr 3rd, 2008 8:30 am



I do not see how one can earn a degree in 15 days. What sort of curriculum do they follow? We have a supervisor that hides the fact that he has a degree from Suffield University. He will tell you that he has a B.A. but will not say from where. All that we know is that he paid 495 and in two weeks had a degree. I see some potential problems with this. posted Mar 12th, 2008 8:34 am
