Bachelor degree accreditation

when the airlines say that they want a bachelors from an accredited college, what accreditation are they looking for? I’ve noticed there are many different types of accreditations out there but I’m not sure if any is better than the other or if they’re wanting it from a specific accreditation. Are there any I should avoid all together?

Layne,

The airlines just mean a degree from a reputable school, They aren’t necessarily checking the actual accreditation of the schools, just looking for reputable schools. I would avoid the obviously questionable online-only schools and find a traditional school that you can attend either in person or online.
