Transworld's Philosophy & Purpose

The Transworld Accrediting Commission International is a federally recognized non-profit church educational organization whose philosophy is to demonstrate accountability to the consuming public for education obtained in non-traditional evangelical educational institutions. This accountability is demonstrated by institutions that are accredited by Transworld, having documented evidence of compliance with Transworld standards of structure and governance, material resources, policies, faculty and curriculum.


Their purpose is:


To provide a mechanism whereby evangelical educational institutions demonstrate that they meet at least minimal standards of performance.


To provide consultation services that enable educational institutions to meet accepted standards of performance.


To provide the consuming public with the current status of institutions which have applied to Transworld for accreditation.


To provide a centralized information and referral source for issues that concern accredited institutions and non-traditional students.


To disseminate information about non-traditional educational options to the general public and promote academic excellence and accountability.
