  Diploma Mills and Accreditation - Diploma Mills
Diploma mills can require little or no work but the result is the same, a degree that has no value and is meaningless.
Some of these foreign diploma mills claim to have approval from the education ministry of their country to offer degrees, when, in reality, they're operating without the knowledge of the country.
These organizations work on behalf of diploma mills to ensure that degrees from these schools are determined to be comparable to a degree that is received from an accredited U.S. institution.

 Diploma mill - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A diploma mill (also known as a degree mill) is an organization which awards academic degrees and diplomas with very little or no academic study and without recognition by official accrediting bodies.
Diploma mills often have names that are deliberately chosen to sound confusingly similar to prestigious accredited institutions (preventing such confusion is the purpose of trademark law, but the mills strive to barely avoid this legal recourse).
Diploma mills could also be guilty of fraud if they mislead customers into believing that the qualifications they issue are accredited or recognised, or make false claims that they will lead to career advancement, and extort money on the basis of these claims.

 A National Study on Graduation Requirements and Diploma Options for Youth with Disabilities - NCEO Technical Report 36
State and local districts are also evolving a range of differentiated diploma options for students with and without disabilities, and these options need to be examined to assess their potential impact on youth with disabilities.
That is, they advocate for retaining a single diploma option, with additional recognition that allows those students, with and without disabilities, who demonstrate mastery beyond the requirements of the standard diploma to receive credit for their accomplishments.
Proponents of multiple diploma options base their argument for this approach on claims of "fairness" and "reasonableness." They contend that when students experience difficulties in passing state exit exams it is only fair and reasonable to create additional options with alternative or different performance expectations.

 Diploma Options and Graduation Policies for Students with Disabilities - NCEO Policy Directions 10
Regardless of the specific diploma options that are available to students, it is important for states and districts to clarify the requirements for each type of diploma, and to make this information widely available.
For all students who repeatedly have not passed the graduation test, this diploma could be earned by developing a comprehensive and convincing body of evidence (including class grades, extracurricular activities, and other convincing evidence) demonstrating that they had met the standards covered by the graduation test.
As states and districts consider the possibility of differentiated diploma options, the requirements that would be attached to different options, re-testing, and an appeals process, there is a need to step back each time to consider the intended and unintended consequences of each alternative.
