Washington International Mission University (WIMU) is not accredited.
To be officially recognized as an “accredited” college by government definition, a school must be evaluated and approved
as such by an accrediting agency that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
This does not reflect on the academic quality of our classes and programs.
Although Washington International Mission University is not an accredited college by this standard, this does not reflect on the academic quality of our classes and programs.
Because of the strong academic foundation, quality of instructors, and deep internship experience gained while at IBC&U, we are recognized by many churches and certain denominations as a qualified training school, and we are considered as substantial and often sufficient in providing training for those in pursuit of obtaining Ministerial Credentials within their organization. Each church and organization has their own standards for licensing, and we strongly encourage you contact them to discover their prerequisites prior to applying with us.
Our position with the State of Washington is that we are registered as a “RELIGIOUS EXEMPT” College. This allows us the flexibility to teach on a broad variety of Christian and Christian Ministry related topics that many other schools cannot offer. In addition, we also do not have the requirement of offering typical “General Education” courses that are usually necessary to receive that level of academic accreditation.
