After a Peer Review and evaluation and in recognition of meeting the High Standards of Academic Excellence, Global Bible College and Seminary (GBCS) has been awarded Certified Member Status by the National Accrediting Agency of Private Theological Institutions and has received full accreditation of curriculum, faculty and administration. Global Bible College and Seminary is thereby accredited to grant religious degrees at the Associate, Bachelor, Master, and Doctorate levels.
Global Bible College and Seminary provides quality assurance in higher education and has a non-governmental accreditation, extended exclusively to private, Christian institutions upon inspection and approval of their programs, operations, and integrity.
The purpose of accreditation is to:
Accreditation is a private, voluntary, non-governmental peer-review process that reviews the educational quality of an institution or program. In the United States, accreditation is the primary means of assuring educational quality. Accreditation status confirms that an institution has voluntarily undergone a comprehensive self-study and peer examination that demonstrates the institution meets standards of accreditation.
To receive accreditation, the institution must clearly demonstrate that it has established educational goals, offers formal, organized learning experiences and services that enable students to meet these stated goals and that students and graduates have benefited from the learning experiences provided.
Furthermore, accreditation assures that an institution operates on a sound financial basis, has approved programs of study, qualified instructors, adequate facilities and equipment and engages in continual improvement through self-evaluation and planning and promotes its programs truthfully.
A degree is only valid if it is properly granted by an entity that has the legal authority to do so and degree-granting authorization cannot be conferred by an accrediting body.
Accreditation agencies are themselves private membership associations and relied upon by many governmental entities to
perform certain qualitative and evaluative functions.
Government-recognized accreditation is not necessary for the religious vocations in which we are equipping our students and people working in ministry positions do not need a government- accredited degree.
Our courses meet the requirements established by many private, independent, and professional associations.
Various regionally or nationally accredited Christian Universities, colleges and seminaries throughout the United States may accept transfer students, credits and degrees from Global Bible College and Seminary.
Transfer-ability of credits earned at Global Bible College and Seminary and transferred to another institution is at the discretion of the receiving institution.
All our Certificates, Diplomas and Degrees are issued from our College, USA.
All students outside of the USA are considered as online students of Global Bible College and Seminary and are registered at our USA college. We will have students from more than 10 nations and therefore cannot meet all the legal and/or accreditation requirements for each nation. Therefore, we are not able to set up a physical presence in each nation except in the state of Florida, USA.
We do not prepare our students for secular work or denominational service. We will seek to provide a sound theological standing from which our students may fulfill their divine purpose and calling. We are not responsible for any problem’s students may have with the higher education authorities in their own nations.
Every ministry implementing Global Bible College and Seminary programs must do so under the name of their own Bible School and they are responsible for ensuring that they operate legally in their nation. Global Bible College and Seminary cannot be held responsible for this as we offer our programs in 30 nations and it is not possible to ensure legal compliance with every nation and for that reason, we accept that Bible Schools ensure that they comply with the laws of their respective nations. Every student that is mentored in various institutions world-wide are registered as online students at our USA College. We merely supply study guides for our international students via PDF. It is the student's responsibility to acquire the books in the various nations through legitimate book suppliers.
