Atlanta Bible College is accredited by the Accrediting Commission International (ACI), 5260 Paylor Lane, Sarasota, FL 34240. ABC received full accreditation and membership in the Commission in 1998. The ACI 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 Christian education. It is a non-governmental body. ABC has been granted U.S. government approval to accept international students. Yet the ACI, is not recognized by the Department of Education and therefore credits are not guaranteed to be accepted by secular, state, or other programs. However, most A or B students who have recently applied to graduate schools have been accepted fully, or on a provisional basis for one semester, and then accepted fully.
