ACCREDITATION

Disclaimer: Making application for accreditation does not imply or guarantee accreditation will occur. Accreditation is a process and WCBCS is committed to completing the process for the accomplishment of our mission.

PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE WEST COAST OFFICES FOR UPDATES. ALL UPDATES WILL BE POSTED HERE AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

WCBCS Receives Accreditation with the Health and Welfare Sector Education and Training Authority in South Africa (HWSETA)

UPDATE: June 21, 2016. Africa President Fanie Mqira has informed us and passed along the accreditation certificate from HWSETA. 

Please see our documents below;

Accreditation Certificate
Education and Training Quality Assurance Paperwork from South African Government

What can governmental accreditation from South Africa mean for you?
Accreditation is a formal recognition that the programs of a college meets certain standards and provides learners with good quality education from their selected program or school. Ultimately, we want our programs to be recognized as viable in the eyes of everyone as a way to honor God. Likewise, (especially for our African students) it means that when you are ready to seek employment, your credentials and qualifications will be recognized. Credits acquired from an accredited college are often transferable to another accredited institution, although they are never guaranteed. 

This accreditation covers the first year diploma degree.to prepare students for ministry. This governmental recognition provides an even deeper level of credibility and acceptance globally. 

WCBCS Hosts Accreditation Site Visit for Accreditation with the Accreditation Service for International Colleges - ASIC

UPDATE: August 2, 2016 - We have been in contact with Geoff Boston of ASIC to inquire as to whether they need any additional information. He informed us that he has completed our report and submitted it to be edited, before it will be voted upon by the accrediting commission. We expect an answer soon

July 14, 2016 - We had a meeting with Geoff Boston from the Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges, and Universities on Wednesday, July 13, in Dallas. This was an extremely positive meeting and was the final stage in our potentially receiving accreditation from ASIC. The next steps will include Mr. Boston returning to the UK, writing his report and recommendation, and then the accreditation commission will vote on his recommendations. We expect the process to be completed in the next 1-2 months, if not before. We will update you when we hear more. ASIC is 1 of 7 accrediting bodies approved by the UK government and is recognized by the Council on Higher Education Agency (CHEA) in the US, as well as around the world.

May 27, 2016 - We have just submitted the final paperwork in Stage 3 of our accreditation with ASIC in the UK. This is the final stage and we hope to have more information to report very soon!

April 6, 2016 - WCBCS has applied for accreditation with the Accreditation Service of International Colleges (ASIC). ASIC is based in the UK and is on the list of recognized higher education accreditation organizations for the UK. (see Wikipedia)

ASIC has also gained many recognitions, memberships and affiliations (a full list can be found here) in acknowledgement of their commitment to quality in education:

  • Recognized by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) in the UK for the Student Visitor Visa Route
  • Gained ISO 9001:2008 Accredited Certification
  • Member of the CHEA International Quality Group in the USA
  • Member of the British Quality Foundation
  • Affiliate Member of ENQA, European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education
  • Member of GUIDE Association, Global Universities in Distance Education
  • Member of UN Academy Impact group
  • Member of The Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA)

This application, and potential accreditation, demonstrates our further commitment to our global education initiative and will allow our students to have even greater recognition around the world.

WCBCS Applies for Accreditation with the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS)

February 3, 2016 - WCBCS submits the Self-Study Report Proposal to TRACS.

January 29, 2016 was a historic day for WCBCS as we submitted our application for accreditation to The Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) via electronic submission. We are also printing out the notebook hard copy and mailing it later today, along with the $7,000 application fee. TRACS is recognized by both the United States Department of Education (USDOE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as a national institutional accrediting agency for Christian postsecondary institutions, colleges, universities, and seminaries.

We will post more information as we move forward. We believe this will not compromise our position on keeping the tuition costs lower for our students, as there will be numerous scholarships available to everyone who would like to apply. These scholarships WILL NOT be available until after accreditation is in effect. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE OFFICE TO ASK ABOUT OUR US ACCREDITATION. WE WILL POST SOMETHING IMMEDIATELY WHEN WE HAVE INFORMATION AND WILL SEND OUT A MASS EMAIL TO OUR STUDENT BODY. We expect this process to take anywhere from 2 to 5 years. Even after having made application we cannot guarantee we will receive it. We remain committed regardless to continue to improve the quality and content of our programs!

WCBCS Undergrad Students Can Apply For Admission To Schools Like Luther Rice Seminary

WCBCS undergraduate students can apply for admission into programs at other colleges. Several WCBCS students transferred to Luther Rice University and were accepted into their various programs. Again: Admission is not 100% guaranteed; students are assessed on a case-by-case basis.

If you specific school in mind, we suggest you contact the schools BEFORE enrolling to ask regarding their acceptance of any credits.   

AUTHORIZATION

CREDIBILITY

We've been asked the question, "Does a degree from West Coast Bible College & Seminary have credibility?" In short, the answer is absolutely! In assessing the credibility of any institution, we suggest that you review the experience and education members of the organization.

If you have any questions, give us a call or ask your employer or denominational leaders to check us out. Our desire is to make sure that your education meets your life needs and goals!

WCBCS Applies for Accreditation with the Council on Higher Education in South Africa (CHE)

UPDATE: January 26, 2016. WCBCS recently paid accreditation dues for CHE and President Harrison and Dr. Condly will be flying to South Africa in March 2016 to meet with leaders within the CHE. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE OFFICE TO ASK ABOUT ACCREDITATION. WE WILL POST SOMETHING IMMEDIATELY WHEN WE HAVE INFORMATION AND WILL SEND OUT A MASS EMAIL TO OUR STUDENT BODY. 

The programs of WCBCS have all been reviewed and approved by SAQA (the South African Qualifications Authority) and CHE (The Council on Higher Education). At this point, we are awaiting the final approval of the member assigned to our accreditation process.

In the past year we had an onsite visit from members of CHE. We have one item they asked us to improve and they last visited our offices in South Africa on December, 2015. As soon as we hear more information, we will update you by posting it online. Please do not call and ask with regard to the current status as you WILL be made aware immediately when a decision has been reached. 

West Coast Bible College & Seminary has also applied for accreditation CHE (The Council on Higher Education).

ADMISSIONS

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

*Students who would like to enroll must: 1) Have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ; 2) Have graduated from high school or completed a GED; and 3) Send copies of the "official transcripts" from all of the schools you have attended to the WCBCS address.

LENGTH OF PROGRAM COMPLETION QUESTIONS

HOW LONG DOES A STUDENT HAVE TO COMPLETE A SPECIFIC PROGRAM?

Bachelor Degrees - 5 years to complete from the time of enrollment
Master Degrees - 3 years to complete from the time of enrollment
Doctor Degrees - 3 years to complete from the time of enrollment

If you fail to complete your program in the allotted amount of time, you may apply for a one year extension to your program before the expiration date. This extension will incur a $500.00 fee. At the end of that time, you will need to re-enroll and take up to 1/2 of your classes over as classes will be updated periodically during your time as a student at West Coast Bible College & Seminary.

HOW LONG DO YOU HAVE TO COMPLETE A CLASS?

Many people have asked the question, "Do I have to finish the classes in the amount of time as prescribed in the syllabus?" The answer is no. The time frame given in the syllabus is merely a suggested guideline and may be adjusted to fit your particular time schedule. Some of our students have finished the classes in less time and some have taken longer. The online, on-demand classes @ WCBCS are made to fit your life.

Students are given a maximum of 6 months to complete any course they have started. After 6 months, you may be required to start the course over and to pay the course (if even you paid in full - you will be charged the per class rate)

WHAT IS THE AVERAGE TIME FRAME TO COMPLETE A CLASS?

In reality, most students complete a class within 30-45 days. With discipline, you can finish each class at Bachelor level in 14 days by simply following the syllabus (18-20 days at the Masters level and 28-30 days at the Doctoral level). You can do the math to figure out how quickly or how slowly you would like to complete a program. Most students complete their degrees in the same time frame that it would take in an on-campus program.

TRANSFER STUDENTS

We often get the question, "Do you accept transfer students?" The answer is definitely, "YES"!!!! Students transferring in hours will receive an assessment completed to determine which classes must be taken for graduation and therefore must have an official copy of a transcript from your previous school(s).  Students may complete up to two classes before their "official transcript" is on file.  

NO TRANSCRIPT WILL BE ASSESSED BEFORE A STUDENT ENROLLS AT WCBCS

What is an "official transcript"? This is the transcript sent directly from your previous schools to our offices and it must be stamped with the official school seal. 

CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT

High school students may, with the permission of the appropriate high school official, concurrently enroll in high school and college courses. A maximum of nine (9) semester hours will be accepted. College students may concurrently enroll in courses at WCBCS.

CHANGING MAJORS

Students may change their major at WCBCS by going to the Online Payments section of the website, paying for the form, and filling it out  There is a $50 change of major fee which can be accessed on the PAYMENTS page.

MCIN - Masters Commission International

MC Director Checklist

MC Student Checklist

What is Master's Commission International Network?

Master’s Commission International Network of Affiliates was formed to preserve the integrity and purity of the heart with which this intense discipleship-training program was created.  Our Mission is “To know God and to make Him known.”  It is the desire of the MCIN to help the local church raise up a generation of world changers, recklessly abandoned to the cause of Christ.  To do this, each Master’s Commission must be a ministry of a local church, not a para-church organization.  Master’s Commission is affecting a generation of young adults who are trained to reach a world with the Word of God as their foundation, prayer as their passion and evangelism as their battle cry.

The Master’s Commission International Network of Affiliates are Master’s Commission programs that share the same heart and desire for character, integrity and discipleship.  If a Master’s Commission program is recognized and backed by the MCIN, then it meets the standards and mirrors the original heart of this movement and will be designated as an “Affiliate”.  Each Affiliate of the MCIN that is in good standing shall have a non-exclusive license to use the registered trade name of Master’s Commission® & Master’s Commission International Network®.  The legal use of the name of Master’s Commission® & Master’s Commission International Network® by anyone or any Affiliate Member of the MCIN is contingent upon avoiding any violation of the enclosed Requirements and Core Values of an MCIN Affiliate Member and the observation of such other requirements as MCIN may impose from time to time.

The purpose of MCIN is to be a training center which enhances established programs and sets a firm foundation for beginning programs.  As a training center, our focus is to strategically design gatherings to strengthen our unity and to equip leaders to raise a nation of leaders.  For beginning programs there are seminars, literature and M.C. directors available to train and mentor.  We are a family committed not only to the success of programs but also to the people giving their lives to the cause of Jesus Christ.
 
West Coast Bible College & Seminary has partnered with numerous MC groups from throughout the US and beyond to make a great discipleship program, even more powerful! If you've ever wanted an on-campus college experience that teaches real-life ministry, then contact MCIN today.
