See the main article on this topic: Academic accreditation

American Liberty University is unaccredited, and in most states, their degrees are inadequate for someone to be licensed in most of the fields the school offers.[2]


ALU offers "degrees" in Acupuncture/Oriental Medicine and Business Administration.

  • Doctor of Philosophy in Acupuncture (PhD)
  • Diploma in Acupuncture (For Licensed Medical Doctors only)


  • Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A)

Doctoral Dissertations

"Doctoral" requirements includes some courses and a "dissertation" of only 20-40 pages in length.
