Welcome to the home page of the Transnational Association of Christian
Colleges and Schools. 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 was established in 1979 to promote the welfare, interests, and
development of postsecondary institutions, whose mission is characterized
by a distinctly Christian purpose, as defined in our Foundational
Standards. TRACS encourages each affiliated institution to develop its
own distinctives, while providing quality postsecondary education within
the context of spiritual development. TRACS institutions place emphasis
on high academic standards as well as Christian values.
Today, TRACS provides academic accreditation to many of America's
finest Christian institutions of higher learning. Whether you are a
prospective student, looking for quality Christian education, or an institution
of academia, seeking the affiliation and accreditation of a respected
organization, TRACS offers the resources to meet your needs. Please take
time to review our online directory of member institutions, and our
information for accreditation applicants. We would be happy to answer any
questions or discuss ways to help you achieve your educational goals.
