    ITU is not shown in the Department of Education Database as being accredited by anyone.

    They are listed under "International Technological University".
    Accredited from 2001 to 2004 by ACICS,
    Accredited by WASC since 2/22/2013.

    Degrees conferred while the institution is accredited are ok. If the OP got a degree from ITU while it wasn't accredited, the degree can't be used.

    Note that despite them being acccredited now, I would still stay away from them. They have had too many violations in the past, and my understanding is that ICE has and maybe still is investigating them. They were often named in the same sentence with TVU and Herguan, e.g., in the famous article in the "Chronicle of Higher Education" in March 2011 about shady universities:
    http://chronicle.com/article/Little-Known-Colleges-Exploit/126822/
    I suggest you sign up with a public university.

    Thanks Joe for sharing the link & the advice.
    I was just trying to find this out more about ITU to help a friend make a informed decision.

    About a year ago we had a case where someone had gone all the way through a program only to see their school lose their accreditation a month before he graduated.
