Additional Miscellaneous Information
Rochville was founded in 2003 and claims 54,000 alumni. They have the following verifiable accreditation: The National Distance Learning Accreditation Council (NDLAC). They have the following verifiable 3rd party memberships: BOUA & UCOEA. Their reviewers are not certified by the NAOAA or any other organization.
Rochville is part of a big conglomeration of
schools. These are all the same company:
- Speedy Degrees
- Belford University
- Rochville University
- Lorenz university
- Hill University
- Affordable Degrees
- Ashwood University
- Corllins University
- Universal Degrees
They responded in two days with the same email as Belford, saying in part, “The life experiences of individuals are analyzed by our faculty and based on their analysis, they are either awarded the relevant degree right away or requested to furnish some more details regarding their experience.”
Their application was easy and didn't take more than 5 minutes. Where it asked me for my life experience I wrote like I did on all the aps: "I work real hard for long time at Dairy Queen." The next day I got an email back saying I was approved for a degree. "Congratulations Madison! We are pleased to announce that on the basis of your resume submitted by the Students' Counselor, the 10-member evaluation committee at Rochville University has finally approved you for Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration."
Did the college accept my factitious and negligible 7-word description of my life experiences? Yes. They sent me the following humorous approval statement -- I say humorous because I never sent a resume -- I only sent them 7 words -- and they had a 10-member evaluation committee review my documents? I think not! "Congratulations Madison! We are pleased to announce that on the basis of your resume submitted by the Students' Counselor, the 10-member evaluation committee at Rochville University has finally approved you for Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration."
They accept credit cards online or money orders. They have a bogus payment plan, whereby you can make three payments, but they won’t send you your degree and other documents until you’ve paid the full amount.

Rochville DOES NOT OFFER REFUNDS. Their website says "We provide no refund once your degree package is shipped at the specified address." I received the package on 11/21 and immediately emailed them for a refund. The package was shipped from Dubai, UAE. They wrote me back on 11/24 saying they want a reason why I'm asking for a refund. I wrote them back on 11/25 saying I just found out that it will not be accepted by my employer because it is not regionally accredited. On 11/27, they wrote and granted a full refund.
"Dear Madison, Your order has been cancelled as per your request and the order amount is being refunded to you. You can check this with your bank in the next 5 days.
When I wrote them back and reminded them I paid by money order, they wrote me this email:
"Dear Madison, We regret to inform you that as you have paid with the money order, we cannot provide you refund on this order. Kindly disregard the last email which you have received as it was sent to you due to an error. Please get back to us with your comments as we are 24/7 here to assist you.
