Regional Accreditation:

Westcott Courses has an exclusive partnership with UMass Global. For the credit courses, we provide the course content, and UMass Global provides the semester credits and official transcript. UMass Global is a private, nonprofit institution accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). Westcott Courses is the teacher of the courses, and your transcript will come from UMass Global's records office.

Once you are finished with the course, we will post your grade with UMass Global and give you the instructions on how to order the transcript from UMass Global's records office. Since Westcott Courses is the teacher, we do not appear on the transcript. The official transcript from UMass Global will show our course the same way it would show a traditional class taken on their campus. Taking a course through this program does not require being enrolled in the university as a regular student; anyone can receive the credits for these classes. Students have the opportunity to earn university credits through UMass Global.
