In the United States accreditation, is a service provided by private agencies and is not a governmental process. Accreditation is a voluntary process for which a school may apply and gain if they meet the standards of the accrediting agency upon examination.
While there are many private, non-government accredit-ing agencies available, Landmark Baptist Theological Seminary is proud to be a member in good standing of Accrediting Commission International, one of the foremost accrediting agencies of religious institutions.

A.C.I. Accreditation Statement
An accrediting organization is a “watchman on the wall”. Webster defines accreditation as to give trust or confidence to; to vouch for; to recommend; to furnish with credentials, as an envoy or ambassador. Every accreditation group is not the same. There are different and focused in different areas of accreditation.
Accrediting Commission International is an international accrediting commission which holds as its primary objective the encouragement and maintenance of sound scholarship and the highest academic achievement in the areas of private education. Quality education is the goal at all times. Its purpose is the preparation of quality education in private schools, colleges, and theological seminaries. It is a non-governmental body and makes no claim to be connected with the government.
A degree covers the major taken with that degree. A student or potential student must understand that credits taken in one type of program mayor may not transfer to another type program. This is the sole determination of the receiving institution.
The job market is highly competitive. Training is specialized in most fields. A graduate in one field may have difficulty in being hired in a field they are not certified for.
I further understand that the Landmark Baptist Theological Seminary of Fort Worth, Texas is primarily a religious school. Credits are not guaranteed to be accepted by secular or state run programs.
Accrediting Commission International is primarily a private school association unrelated to government accreditation.
