Is Florida State Seminary certified?
Yes! Florida State Seminary is a nationally “CERTIFIED” institution. We are recognized and reviewed by the American Council of Private Colleges (ACPC).
Are credits transferable?
Yes! Our credits are transferable due to our Commission for Independent Education (CIE), and Florida Department of Education (FDOE) over-site. Our credits and degrees are also accepted by the Florida Bureau of Educator Certification (FBEC) for Teacher certification. Many of our graduates are in leadership roles in both the secular and religious fields. We have graduates, of other institutions, who enroll in our Divinity and Ph.D. programs in order to gain access to a Religious Degree.
Are you regionally accredited?
We are not Regionally Accredited. Why? We don’t feel it is frugal to spend in excess of $60,000.00+ for someone to tell us that our courses and degrees are academically acceptable: They have been since 1972. FSS meets state and national recognition.
The Department of Education lists an institution as “Accredited, Certified or Approved”. We are both Approved and Certified. None of our students have had difficulty in transferring credits or degrees. We will contact any institution on your behalf.
Accreditation is given in order that an institution can get Federal or State Funding. We do not desire Federal Funding because it forces us to allow UNGODLY requirements.
We would be forced to admit persons of any belief or lifestyle, contrary to the Biblical World View.
