I am currently a senior in mathematics and I am close to graduating. I created a list of prospective graduate schools with master's and doctoral programs and it has 14 schools so far. Is it important for a graduate school to have an accredited graduate program or be an accredited graduate school? If so, how can I check to see if a graduate school has an accredited graduate program?

Yes, it is very important that a graduate program be accredited! If you have a degree from a school that is not accredited, any degree you get is likely to be ignored. Pretty much any well known or state college is likely to be accredited but you can always ask which accrediting organization accredits the school (typically that is given in the school handbook) and then check with the accrediting organization to verify that.

If they're not accredited, they're hardly a university at all! I've never checked on a school's accreditation status before, though, because any that I would apply to would 'obviously' be accredited.
