In 1993, Jones International University opened its "doors". It was the first fully online college to be accredited by the Higher Learning Commission(HLC), the very same agency that grants accreditation status to the University Of Notre Dame and other prestigious Universities. This further legitimized distance education.( Casey, 2208,pg. 48).
