>The University


The university, incorporated in 1919 in Washington, D.C., is licensed to confer degrees by the Educational Institution Licensure Commission of the District of Columbia. It is accredited in the U.S by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools; the last visit by a full accreditation team took place in May 1998 as a part of the ten year reaccreditation review process.

In Egypt the university operates as a private cultural institute within the framework of the 1962 Egyptian-American Cultural Cooperation Agreement, in accordance with an implementing protocol with the government of Egypt. This protocol, promulgated as a presidential decree and ratified by the Egyptian People's Assembly in 1975, recognizes the university's degrees as equivalent to those awarded by Egyptian national universities.
