CCBC is not accredited by an external agency, but our leadership is re-evaluating whether seeking accreditation would improve our service to students and help us become more effective in carrying out our mission.
Currently, we seek to demonstrate the credibility of CCBC through compliance with generally accepted accreditation standards, credit transfer agreements with accredited colleges, and especially through the spiritually fruitful lives of our graduates.
Many opportunities have been available for students who feel called to pursue further education beyond CCBC. Although CCBC is not accredited, many accredited colleges have accepted some of our courses in transfer, and graduates with our bachelor’s degree have been accepted by some of the finest seminaries in the United States. For more information on transferring from CCBC to other institutions, please view the College Packet below.
Explanatory note: A school is accredited when it has been investigated and found worthy of approval by an accrediting agency. Some accrediting agencies are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), but others are not recognized. Also, some schools are based outside of the U.S. and are accredited by standards which differ from those of the recognized agencies in the United States.View College Packet
