Welcome To TRACS
Providing academic accreditation to many of America's finest Christian institutions of higher learning.
TRACS is recognized by both the United States Department of Education, and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, as a national accrediting body for Christian institutions, colleges, universities, and seminaries.
TRACS is also a member of the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education. TRACS is a voluntary, non-profit, self-governing organization that provides accreditation to Christian postsecondary institutions offering associate, baccalaureate, and graduate degrees.
TRACS Reauthorized by Department of Education
We are proud to announce that the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) notified TRACS on July 23, 2013 that the agency has been reauthorized as a nationally recognized institutional accrediting agency. The DOE process requires that accrediting agencies be reauthorized every five years. This includes a DOE review process which is similar to that required of an institution seeking accreditation. For recognition an accrediting agency must be in compliance with all federal regulations under section 34 of Criteria for Recognition (CFR) §602.10 through §602.28 and all subsections.
The scope of recognition for TRACS is as follows:
The accreditation and preaccreditation (“Candidate” status) of Christian postsecondary institutions in the United States that offer certificates, diplomas, and associate, baccalaureate, and graduate degrees, including institutions that offer distance education.
DOE authorization assures that TRACS is maintaining the highest level of quality in the review of its institutions.
