Persons whose professional or career goals require certification by a state or federal government agency should check in advance to determine whether a degree from an AICCS-accredited school would be acceptable. Individuals needing to earn a regionally accredited degree in one of the disciplines offered by an AICCS-accredited institution may wish to investigate comparable programs offered at more traditional on-campus colleges currently accredited by a regional association recognized by the United States Department of Education.

If the sole purpose of needing an education is for the Gospel ministry or related field within Christian ministry, secular accreditation is not necessary or required. All Christian churches accept quality Christian education regardless of which accreditation group, if any of the referenced institutions belong. If study is for purpose other than ministry, such as business administrator, engineer, lawyer etc., Students should apply to an institution that belongs to a regional accrediting association. In secular education, regional accreditation is essential! For education of those in Christian service, secular accreditation does little more than typically make the tuition beyond the reach of most ministers.

CMM College of Theology provides associate, bachelor, master, and doctor degrees. We have been able to secure full accreditation through private ministry accreditation to keep tuition cost at a minimum.

South Carolina Exemption Status

We hold an exempt status with the state of South Carolina as our degrees are ministry degrees, not liberal arts.

The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education is the licensing authority for private postsecondary education under the provisions of the Nonpublic Postsecondary Institution License Act, Chapter 58 of Title 59, South Carolina Code of Laws, 1976, as amended. Section 59-58-30 of the law states that the definition 10 of a “nonpublic educational institution” does not include “(4) Institutions whose sole purpose is religious or theological training.”

**Accreditation is not a requirement of law; it is a status sought voluntarily by an institution from a group of peer institutions and is accomplished by a voluntary, nongovernmental body called an accrediting commission.
