In contrast to recent press reports, the Hungarian Accreditation Committee (HAC) did not accredit the offshore university that issues American degrees (CEU).

The HAC accredited the Central European University, which issues Hungarian diplomas and operates according to Hungarian regulations at the request of the institution itself, in view of the fact that the university’s five-year accreditation expired on 31 December 2017.

With relation to the CEU, which operates according to U.S. law and issues American diplomas under the auspices of American accreditation, and which accordingly may be regarded as an offshore university, the investigation is still ongoing with relation to whether it performs any education activities at all in its own country of origin. The law is applicable to all universities, including the Soros university.
