I am no lawyer but I would assume that would be the most resonable thing to do, Am I correct JUDGE Shotojuku?
Correct, reciprocity does not always apply to all laws from State to State, yet the spirit of the law does and more importantly so do the direct ethical/legal implications of submitting fraudulent information greater than what would be considered an exaggeration of the truth on any resume or application.

I agree once somthing is illegal in one state, even if the law has no effect in a diffrent states, the people will still look at it as somthing illegal.
Or at least not incorrect.

I noticed this and thought it should be included here as it promotes more discussion.

Check out - FSS: 817.567 (Florida State Statute) First Degree Misdemeanor. There are 37 people currently serving their sentence now.

817.567 Making false claims of academic degree or title.--

(1) No person in the state may claim, either orally or in writing, to possess an academic degree, as defined in s. 1005.02, or the title associated with said degree, unless the person has, in fact, been awarded said degree from an institution that is:

(a) Accredited by a regional or professional accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education or the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation;

(b) Provided, operated, and supported by a state government or any of its political subdivisions or by the Federal Government;

(c) A school, institute, college, or university chartered outside the United States, the academic degree from which has been validated by an accrediting agency approved by the United States Department of Education as equivalent to the baccalaureate or postbaccalaureate degree conferred by a regionally accredited college or university in the United States;

(d) Licensed by the 1State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities pursuant to ss. 1005.01-1005.38 or exempt from licensure pursuant to 2s. 246.085; or

(e) A religious seminary, institute, college, or university which offers only educational programs that prepare students for a religious vocation, career, occupation, profession, or lifework, and the nomenclature of whose certificates, diplomas, or degrees clearly identifies the religious character of the educational program.

(2) No person awarded a doctorate degree from an institution not listed in subsection (1) shall claim in the state, either orally or in writing, the title "Dr." before the person's name or any mark, appellation, or series of letters, numbers, or words, such as, but not limited to, "Ph.D.," "Ed.D.," "D.N.," or "D.Th.," which signifies, purports, or is generally taken to signify satisfactory completion of the requirements of a doctorate degree, after the person's name.

(3)(a) A person who violates the provisions of subsection (1) or subsection (2) commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.

(b) In addition to any penalty imposed under paragraph (a), a violator shall be subject to any other penalty provided by law, including, but not limited to, suspension or revocation of the violator's license or certification to practice an occupation or profession.

Here's a question from one of my own postings.........Would a degree, say from any of the California "State Approved" (BPPVE) [CPU, CSU, Calf Miramar, Ryokan College, etc.] schools qualify under the aforementioned SS under section (1) (b)?

Example (CPU): http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/sd/details....03358&public=Y

From the statute that you have provided, and if there is not another that overrides it, then I would assume that any state's sanctioned degree would qualify(Even KWU?), including the schools you have listed.

The statue Brian posted piqued my interest so I thought I would check my state, New York. I found the following website:

http://www.op.nysed.gov/opregs.htm

Which is pretty interesting for professionals to look at. It seems, at least from a psychology prospective, you could use your a title from one of those schools in NY as well. This following is listed in sub section 72.1.b(1) of the Professional study of psychology:
Quote:
1. offered by an institution accredited by an accrediting organization acceptable to the department or recognized by the appropriate civil authorities of the jurisdiction in which the school is located as an acceptable doctoral program in psychology;

This is the, "cheapest" website I have ever seen... even the diploma mills seem to have more style and, "umphf."

http://www.ryokan.edu/

Anyone have experience with Ryokan?

This just has to be a diploma mill...
