Central Christian University has been declared by the appropriate state authority exempt from the requirements for licensure under provisions of the North Carolina General Statutes Section (G.S) 16-125(d) for exemption from licensure with respect to religious education.  Exemption from licensure is not based upon any assessment of program quality under established licensing standards.

The Board of Governors as agent of the State regulates nonpublic post-secondary degree activity in North Carolina through a licensing process. Licensure is required by law. Accreditation, on the other hand, is not a requirement of law; it is a status sought voluntarily by an institution from a group of peer institutions and is accomplished by a voluntary, nongovernmental body called an accrediting commission.

State licensure fulfills a consumer protection function, protecting potential and enrolled students and employers, as well as the public in general. It substantiates minimum educational quality and is prerequisite to, among other things, receipt by institutions and their students of sizeable sums of public funds derived from the taxing power of the State. Accreditation commissions also provide consumer protection, but their primary purpose is to serve those institutions that called them into being.

Central Christian University is a Certified Academic Institution of the National Christian Counselors Association (NCCA).

Central Christian University is accredited by Transworld Accrediting Commission (TAC), 1355 E. Alessandro, Suite 201, Riverside, California 92508. (951) 901-5586, www.traccom.org

TAC is a professional nonprofit educational organization that accredits traditional and nontraditional schools, colleges, and theological seminaries. The philosophy of TAC is to demonstrate accountability to the consuming public for education obtained in traditional and nontraditional evangelical educational institutions. This accountability is demonstrated by institutions that are accredited by TAC having documented evidence of compliance with TAC standards of structure and governance, material resources, policies, faculty and curriculum. Further information concerning TAC may be obtained by writing to the address above, visiting their website or by phone.

Degree programs are for religious purposes only and are strictly intended for use in the religious community.  Therefore it is the responsibility of each student to determine, prior to registration at Central Christian, that their degree program or studies meet admission, employment or transfer requirements.

The University makes no representations, promises or guarantees of employment or acceptability of transfer credits to any public or private educational institution.
