Accreditation & Certification Progress & Assessment



“The Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) is a voluntary, non-profit, self-governing organization of Christian postsecondary institutions. TRACS is recognized as a national institutional accrediting agency by the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) and is a member of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).  TRACS was established by a group of educators in 1979, the purpose of which was to promote the welfare, interests, and development of quality Christian postsecondary institutions whose mission is characterized by a distinctively Christian orientation. While TRACS encourages each affiliated institution to develop its own distinctive (identity), TRACS expects institutions to provide quality postsecondary education within the context of Christian values, with emphasis on high academic standards, integrity, practical application, and spiritual development.”

The College and the Board of Trustees rely on the Strategic Plan as the blue print going forward and becoming the premiere Christian higher educational institution in the nation. The Board is heavily involved and has revised the plan based on the challenges and opportunities facing the institution. The Board relies on the assessment of the strategic goals and initiatives in revisions to the plan.


The College and the Board are committed to data-based decision making and instituting a culture of evidence. The Assessment Plan entails the institution’s assessment activities and instruments, the responsible party, and the time line. Institutional and student learning objectives have associated assessment procedures and surveys to evaluate the effectiveness of the College in meeting its mission and educational goals.
