On Feb. 6th, 2018, our board of trustees voted to pursue accreditation of CCBC, in order to improve our service to students and help us become more effective in carrying out our mission. On June 27th, 2018, CCBC was granted applicant status by the Association for Biblical Higher Education, a faith-based, national accrediting agency recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the U.S. Department of Education. Although not currently accredited, CCBC is progressing toward accreditation, and has achieved an important initial step of receiving applicant status. Here is our official statement regarding accreditation:
Calvary Chapel Bible College holds applicant status with the Association for Biblical Higher Education Commission on Accreditation, located at 5850 T. G. Lee Blvd., Ste. 130, Orlando, Florida, 32822, (407) 207-0808. Applicant status is a pre-membership status granted to those institutions that meet the ABHE Conditions of Eligibility and that possess such qualities as may provide a basis for achieving candidate status within five years.
Many accredited colleges have accepted some of CCBC’s courses in transfer, and graduates with our bachelor’s degree have been accepted by some of the finest seminaries in the United States. For more information on transferring from CCBC to other institutions, please view the College Packet or contact our Registrar’s office (email@example.com).
Explanatory note: A school is accredited when it has been investigated and found worthy of approval by an accrediting agency. Some accrediting agencies are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), but others are not recognized. Also, some schools are based outside of the U.S. and are accredited by standards which differ from those of the recognized agencies in the United States.

Payment Plan Setup Fee (optional plan breaks tuition into 4 payments): $25

A full refund of tuition charges may be given if requested by the end of the second week of the semester, which is the Add/Drop date. Withdrawals requests must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. No refund will be given if request is made after the Add/Drop date.
*The $50 administrative fee is non-refundable at any time, since it applies toward enrollment costs which are incurred by the college during enrollment at the beginning of the semester.
