TAC is a professional nonprofit educational organization that accredits traditional and nontraditional schools, colleges, and theological seminaries. The philosophy of TAC is to demonstrate accountability to the consuming public for education obtained in traditional and nontraditional evangelical educational institutions. This accountability is demonstrated by institutions that are accredited by TAC having documented evidence of compliance with TAC standards of structure and governance, material resources, policies, faculty and curriculum. Further information concerning TAC may be obtained by calling or writing to them or clicking on their above web address.
ECUA is not nationally or regionally accredited. Although we are confident in our accountability through TAC accreditation, ECUA has not sought to become regionally accredited. We most likely will not in the future.
NOTICE REGARDING NATIONAL/REGIONAL NON-GOVERNMENTAL ACCREDITATION
National/Regional accreditation would involve coming under governmental regulations that may not be in harmony with our view of biblical ethics and principles. To come under such control, which is not required by law or necessary to remain accountable, we feel would impede our ability to follow the specific calling of our Lord to equip leaders in His church.
It is important for the potential student to know that some education institutions require that any credits transferred into their institution come from a regionally accredited school. Also, many state agencies require a degree from a regionally accredited school to receive certification.
ECUA has no control over what other institutions or agencies accept. The potential student is strongly encouraged to discuss with the ECUA staff how you plan to use your degree from Evangel.
