Accreditation, Eastern Carolina Christian College & Seminary

Greetings! Welcome to the Accreditation information page. Eastern Carolina Christian College & Seminary (ECCC&S) is Accredited by AAATI (American Accrediting Association of Theological Institutions, Inc.).

Eastern Carolina Christian College & Seminary is authorized and approved to grant degrees in the State of North Carolina under North Carolina General Statue 116-15(d), of The University of North Carolina Board of Governors (BoG) and recognized as a 501(c)(3) organization as stated in the Internal Revenue Service letter of determination dated September 22, 2014.

About Accreditation:
In the United States, accreditation is used to assure quality in schools, educational institutions, and programs. It should be noted that accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental process of review and evaluation. The accreditation process requires an educational institution or program to meet certain defined standards or criteria as set forth by the accrediting body. These standards change from State to State and from region to region. These standards also change with time. In fact, thankfully and partly because of our country's heritage and Constitution (re: "freedom of choice") there are no two Universities that have the same structure, philosophies, teaching modalities or evaluation criteria. This can act to allow or permit a certain degree of freedom. Our programs are not designed to meet any specific local, state, territorial, regional, or national licensing or credentialing laws. Further, being non-traditional in nature, our programs are not designed to meet a particular requirement established by any private association or "traditional" licensing or other accrediting organization.

Without doubt, many of our students/graduates are among the highest caliber, most intelligent, talented, best educated and most effective individuals you will find anywhere. They and their ECCC&S degrees are equal to their counterparts from traditional schools anywhere in the world.

Will my degree be accepted?
Although our graduates do quite well in the job market and are accepted by numerous other schools, ECCC&S makes no promises, representations nor guarantees of employment or acceptability of transfer credits to any public or private educational institution. If you are seeking an ECCC&S degree for specific licensing, employment, or additional educational purposes, we advise you to first check with the association, governmental agency, employer, or specific educational institution to determine the acceptability.

Will a degree from ECCC&S be accepted by another school?
This all depends on the school. No school must accept credit from any other school. In many cases the credits received from ECCC&S are accepted by other schools. ECCC&S utilizes only the finest materials available. However, we cannot say what another school will accept.

The main question to be asked when considering a school is "Is this the school that will please God?" If it pleases God, then it doesn't matter who is displeased. We ask all our students to pray about all they do in life. Our school is about honoring Christ and being His servants. We feel the accreditation of God is on our school because we strive to please Him in academics and ministry training.

If the school is right for God, then it's right for you. We encourage you to prayerfully fill out the free academic evaluation form and send it back to us as soon as possible so that you may begin today to prepare for the greater ministry that God has for you!
