Accreditation

Virginia Baptist College is a member of the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) [15935 Forest Road, Forest, VA 24551; Telephone: (434) 525-9539; e-mail: info@tracs.org] having been awarded Reaffirmation I of its Accredited Status as a Category III institution by the TRACS Accreditation Commission on April 19, 2016. This status is effective for a period of ten years. TRACS is recognized by the United States Department of Education, the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, and the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE).

As a Christian institution, we do not seek accreditation to validate our message but rather as a vehicle for self-improvement and to communicate the quality of our educational function. Virginia Baptist College credits are transferable to many institutions; however, colleges and universities establish their criteria for acceptance independently, and questions about transferability of credit should be addressed prior to enrollment.
