In order to ensure the quality of its educational offerings, Cincinnati Christian University has chosen to participate in several accrediting associations.

Our voluntary participation in these associations requires us to regularly evaluate the effectiveness of our educational programs, our institutional performance, and the support and services we provide to students. They also provide comparative statistics to help CCU determine how well it is performing in relation to other schools in the associations. Membership in these associations also means that our students are able to transfer credits between other schools who are members of those agencies.
