About Accreditation

Concerning accreditation; the value of any accredited university, accredited bible college or accredited on line seminary degree is subjective, depending on the amount of work that went into earning it, the student’s attitude and aptitude, and external circumstances related to the school itself or to the graduate’s working world.

You should be aware that many Christian Private Schools, Bible Colleges and Seminaries elect not to be governed by the U.S. Department of Education and do not seek Regional Accreditation, which is more common among Secular Colleges and Universities. Christian Educational Ministries are automatically exempt from the dictates of both the Government and secular accreditation agencies. Great Commission Bible College, like other Christian Education Ministries, has full theological accreditation which is recognized and respected as an acceptable form of accreditation for those in pursuit of ministry related avocations.

Great Commission Bible College is both a state authorized and theologically accredited institution of higher learning. Most accredited universities, accredited seminaries, accredited Bible colleges and accredited colleges have their own criteria for recognition and acceptability of on line educational credits. It is a member of the A.I.C.C.S. (Association of Independent Christian Colleges and Seminaries) The individual should always address specific questions to selected institutions in determining their particular criteria concerning accreditation.
