Lumina works with US PSE institutions to create credential registry

July 14, 2015

The Lumina Foundation is giving $2.25 M to fund the creation of a credential registry, which will help users compare the quality and value of credentials issued by colleges and universities across the US. The web-based system will draw upon information received directly from issuing institutions and use a system similar to that which is currently used to determine students’ eligibility for transfer between institutions and programs. The registry will be built by George Washington University, Southern Illinois University, and Workcred, a non-profit affiliate of the American National Standards Institute.
