Life Christian University Satellite Campus Accreditation: Accrediting Commission International
“LCU has chosen to be accredited through Accrediting Commission International. ACI is an internationally known, non-profit, church educational organization. They handle the accreditation of Christian theological seminaries, universities, and colleges throughout the world, providing supervision for almost 300 schools in 8 countries and in 38 states of the U.S.
Accrediting Commission International is an independent accrediting agency that exists to help the religious world obtain accreditation that is not government affiliated. All ACI member institutions around the world accept credits from other member schools, if the credits apply to their programs. We have chosen not to seek governmental school accreditation offered by the U.S. Department of Education or a regional accrediting association because we believe we should not allow secular institutions to dictate the qualifications for instructors or the programs for a spirit-filled ministerial degree. As a Christian College, we offer academic programs that are specifically designed to equip students who feel the call of God on their lives and wish to build a ministerial career or to further their Christian education. It is not for persons intending to build secular careers.
This form of ministry accreditation is not recognized by the United States Department of Education, but is recognized by most churches, ministry institutions, and ministry organizations.”
