|About MORIAH: Accreditation|
On March 7, 2005, Moriah Institute of Christian Studies attained accreditation with the educational family of Transworld Accrediting Commission International (TAC), a private accrediting association that recognizes our religious educational program. MORIAH is considered by TAC to have fulfilled the requirements of Associate Member by "developing and maintaining a viable educational program in keeping with the spirit of excellence for all Christian ministerial endeavors," and in doing so, has been granted Accredited Member status. Being accredited by TAC further reinforces the position of Moriah Institute of Christian Studies as inter-denominational and not affiliated by membership with any denomination or religious sect.
Dr. Anderson and the Board of Commissioners at TAC are working diligently toward gaining equal recognition by the US Department of Education through exemption, with the help of TAC Commissioner and other experts in this area. This will be a big step for our institution's listing in the government directory, etc., but at the same time we will be careful not to compromise our "non-traditional," "nongovernmental" freedoms in the US Constitution. We will keep you apprised of developments in this effort.
MORIAH's ultimate aim has always been and still is to provide a degree and training acceptable to church and ministry work. Students who require an accredited course of study for career promotion or tenure according to State and Federal guidelines are encouraged to seek degrees offered by state institutions or those declared acceptable by the employers in question.
