Search the CHEA Website

Enter one or more keywords to search for using the Zoom Search Engine.

Note: CHEA's Database of Institutions and Programs Accredited by Recognized United States Accrediting Organizations is not searchable using this search engine. The Database contains a search feature that allows users to search for either accredited institutions or accredited programs.

Search Tips

You can search specific sections of the CHEA Website by checking the "Category" boxes under the "Search for" box. You can check one or more of these boxes, or simply check the "All" box to search the entire CHEA Website.

Note that '*' and '?' wildcards are supported. See below for details.

Enter a query in the "Search for" box and click the “Submit” button. The word or words searched for will appear highlighted in the Results column below.

Links to results of the search are highlighted in blue at the top of each item.

Advanced Search Features:

You can search for an exact phrase by typing quotes around the words (such as: "CHEA recognition").

Wildcard Searches: Use an asterisk in place of zero or more characters in a word. This is particularly useful when you are trying to find a match for a word that may be found in several forms on the CHEA Website. For example, typing accred* will yield search results including accreditation, accrediting, accreditor, accredited and other words beginning with accred. Use a question mark in place of a single character.

For example, he* will match any word starting with he, such as he, her, help, hello, helicopter, and so on. On the other hand, he? will only match three-letter words starting with he, such as hem, hen, and so on. There can be more than one wildcard in a single search term or phrase, and the two wildcard characters can be used in combination. For example, m*?? will match words starting with m with three or more characters. Wildcards only work within single words.
