ACCREDITATION AND REGULATION STATEMENT

Accreditation is found only in the United States of America, as all other countries regulate colleges and universities through government approval.  In the United States, accreditation is a voluntary process governed by independent (private) accrediting agencies that are either recognized by the federal government or not.

Institutional accreditation is a process that a college or university voluntarily goes through.  The institution requests that an accreditation agency assess its programs, its faculty, and its students' success to determine if these meet the standards for higher education.  If the standards are met, the institution is accredited an regularly reassessed to make certain that the entire institution continues to meet that standard.

The New Testament (TNT) Church School of Theology (SOT) is an Associate Member of Transworld Accrediting Commission, Inc. (TACI) with all the honors, rights and privileges to that title appertaining. The Commission’s headquarters is 9085 California Avenue in Riverside, California.

The license to operate a college or university is regulated by the state government and is not considered accreditation. Each state has different guidelines concerning universities, seminaries, and Bible colleges.
