Almeda University

Almeda University claims to “offers a wide range of Life Experience and online degree programs for Associate, Bachelor and Master degree levels” (http://almedauniversity.org/), and is located at 10400 West Overland Road #224, Boise, Idaho, United States of America, according to academic documents and the letter of graduation; however this address does not appear on their website.  10400 W. Overland Road, Boise, Idaho, United States of America is the address of a UPS Store, suggesting that this address is not a physical address of Almeda University.  A Google Maps image of the address shows a UPS Store in what appears to be a shopping area.

A note about Accreditation:


Accreditation or acceptance by any the above organizations ensures the student that Almeda degrees are issued in accordance with stated policies and are issued based on a measurable standard of review. Accreditation by any of these organizations does not guarantee acceptance of your degree. If you are unsure about whether your employer or perspective employer will accept your degree, we encourage you to contact them before proceeding any further with us. 
The same can be said for transferring your Almeda degree to another college or university. Few colleges or universities recognize credits earned at other institutions. This goes for traditional colleges, such as Harvard or Yale, as well as non-traditional colleges like Almeda.Therefore, if you wish to use your Almeda degree as the basis for further education or transfer your Almeda credits to another educational institution, we encourage you to contact that institution before pursuing your degree at Almeda to see what their policy is on this matter.
There are several types of accreditation: institutional, specialized, and private. Institutional accreditors, such as those referred to as "regional" accreditors, examine the college or university as a whole educational institution. Specialized accreditors evaluate specific educational programs. Professional accreditors, such as those for medicine, law, architecture and engineering, fall into this category. Private accreditors develop their own standards of acceptance and accreditation by any of these organizations ensures the public that the accredited institution meets the standards set forth by the accreditor. 


None of the accrediting agencies that recognize Almeda University are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as one of the seven official regional accrediting agencies. This non-recognition may have some implications to include, but not limited to: 1. Almeda University is unable to participate in the Federal Student Loan/Financial Aid program. 2. Almeda University is not authorized to accept the GI Bill. 3. Almeda University is unable to guarantee acceptance of its degree programs in other postsecondary institutions.  4. Public sector employers will not recognize a degree accredited by a private accreditor. 5. Private sector employers have no obligation to accept degrees from Almeda University.

We recommend that all prospective applicants check with their potential employer to determine their policies on acceptance of degrees from private postsecondary institutions with private accreditation.

Furthermore, we recommend that all prospective applicants review local and state laws regarding the use of non-regionally accredited degrees in their jurisdiction.



The Almeda degree is a valuable resource for many individuals. However, not all people can benefit from this type of degree. This is why Almeda offers a liberal refund policy as your satisfaction is guaranteed. 

If you would like to discuss this matter further with us, we would be glad to assist. Please use the contact-us links on this website to send us your comments. We respond to all correspondence.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Are Almeda Degrees accepted in industry and business?
A: Many employers pay our applicants' tuition! Our students come from Fortune 500 companies, government and military agencies, small businesses, and more. Acceptance of any degree depends on the individual company, agency, association, or board. We recommend checking with the institution concerned prior to enrollment.
Q: If I obtain a degree from Almeda, will I be able to transfer my credits or use my degree to enter a graduate or post-graduate program at another institution?
A: The short answer to this question is: some universities will; some won't. The reality is that few colleges or universities recognize credits earned at other institutions. This goes for traditional universities, such as Harvard or Yale, as well as non-traditional universities like Almeda. Therefore, if you wish to use your Almeda degree as the basis for further education or to transfer your Almeda credits to another educational institution, we encourage you to contact that institution before pursuing your degree at Almeda to see what their policy is on this matter.
Q: Do you accept military education programs, such as the GI Bill?
A: Presently, Almeda does not participate in Federal Student Aid programs.

Q: Does Almeda offer a student loan or financial aid program? 

A: No. Payment of all tuition fees is entirely the responsibility of the student. However, because Almeda does not operate a campus or employ a full-time faculty, these fees are much lower than you would expect to pay for a degree from a traditional college or university.

Q: I am not a USA resident. Can you help me get a USA Student Visa or an H1B Work Visa?

A: No. Almeda is online only and therefore there are no residency requirements. If you are seeking the Almeda University degree to gain entry into the USA, your request will be denied. Almeda will not provide or assist with any credentialing necessary to obtain Visas for foreign citizens. For information on obtaining a Visa for entry into the USA, please see http://travel.state.gov.
