Educational quality at Christian colleges, universities and seminaries is essential. You’ll find that here at CIU.
CIU maintains accreditation from the most respected accrediting agencies. That means that your classwork and your degree will meet the widely accepted secular standards.
That’s true for our undergraduate programs and our graduate programs, just as it is for our seminary programs and for our online program. And that’s important down the road. You'll have the confidence that your degree will transfer to postgraduate education.
We are currently accredited by the following:
- The Southern Association for Colleges and Schools (SACS) and its Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
- The Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE).
- The Association of Theological Schools (ATS).
CIU also is an affiliate campus of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
We are seeking additional accreditation through the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), for our master’s degree in counseling.
