Greetings Knight Nation,
First of all, I hope that you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year.
I wanted to take a moment to share the wonderful news that our accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) has been reaffirmed until the year 2030.
Officially, Kentucky Christian University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award associate, baccalaureate, masters degrees. Questions about the accreditation of KCU may be directed in writing to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097, by calling (404) 679-4500, or by using information available on SACSCOC’s website (www.sacscoc.org).
Just to provide a little background, KCU submitted an initial self-study early in the fall of last year as a part of the 10-year accreditation cycle. This report addressed every aspect of the University’s work. It was 243 pages long with over 300 supporting documents. This digital document included over 800 links to make it easier for the reviewers to reference the supporting materials that demonstrated our compliance with the 87 individual SACSCOC standards. SACSCOC sent the document to an off-site committee for review. We responded to their report with a second document and hosted an on-site committee the first week of March. We were blessed to be one of the final schools to receive teams before the lockdown due to COVID-19.
We then responded via a third document to the 6 Standards that they indicated that we still needed to address. The SACSCOC Commissioners reviewed our response and made a final determination concerning our accreditation for the next 10 years during their annual meeting the first week of December.
I’m very pleased to report that KCU was viewed as fiscally sound and faithfully completing its mission. We have received another 10 years of accreditation! Almost everyone at KCU made significant contributions to this process. Faculty, staff, and trustees served on committees, worked on assessments, helped gather evidence of compliance, met with the members of the on-site team, and so forth.
We praise God for his watch care over the institution.
For the Good of the Cause,
