LITHONIA, GA. — Luther Rice College and Seminary was recently granted membership as an accredited institution by the Board of Trustees of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award baccalaureate, masters, and doctorate degrees.
The announcement was made by the SACSCOC Board of Trustees during their December Annual Meeting. This exciting announcement is the result of many years of institutional planning, execution, and prayer among the Luther Rice Board of Trustees, administration, faculty, staff, students, donors, and alumni. SACSCOC accreditation will provide multiple benefits for Luther Rice students in the future, including opportunities for broader acceptance of transfer credits for post-Luther Rice work and recognition in the work place where a SACSCOC accredited degree is preferred or required.
Led by President Dr. James Flanagan, Luther Rice has now further strengthened its position to execute its mission of serving the church by providing biblically based, on-campus and distance education to Christian men and women for ministry with an end to granting undergraduate and graduate degrees. “Accreditation by SACSCOC has fulfilled a strategic goal that we’ve worked toward for decades. I am grateful for God’s guidance and my colleagues’ efforts to accomplish this milestone.” says President Flanagan.
In addition to SACSCOC, Luther Rice continues to be accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) and the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE).
Known for its adherence to biblical inerrancy, ministry development, 100% online degree programs, and affordable tuition and fees, Luther Rice College and Seminary continues to be the trustworthy option for those committed to ministry and in need of an education.
