Students and teachers who want to have their work recognized with an accredited diploma should first enroll with the Seminary and get approval. Upon approval, students and teachers will be tracked for their class and objectives completion. Diplomas are conferred upon completion of each level. We do not give credit for individual classes. Because we require correct doctrine in order to graduate, we do not confer diplomas upon students who are not in agreement with what we believe (for details, see Alignment of the School’s Teaching on pages 17-18 in Class 200 S. O. S. Compendium). Unregistered students can access and use the curricula as they desire. Enrolled students are expected to learn and receive the school’s teaching. After enrollment information is reviewed, the Seminary will reply to the student informing him of approval or reasons for non-approval.
If you are interested, please fill out the following Rhode Island Baptist Seminary enrollment form. Please email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
An accrediting organization is a “watchman on the wall.” Webster defines accreditation as: “to give trust or confidence to; to vouch for; to recommend; to furnish with credentials, as an envoy or ambassador.” Every accreditation group is not the same. They are different and focused in different areas of accreditation.
Accrediting Commission International is an international accrediting commission which holds as its primary objective the encouragement and maintenance of sound scholarship and the highest academic achievement in the areas of private education. Quality education is the goal at all times. Its purpose is the preparation of quality education in private schools, colleges, and theological seminaries. It is a non-governmental body and makes no claim to be connected with the government. U. S. Department of Education schools do not receive credits from this school.
No absolute guarantee is given that credits received from R. I. B. S. will be transferable to a government school. The job market is highly competitive. Training is specialized in most fields. A graduate in one field may have difficulty in being hired in a field they are not certified for.
By signing this form, I am signifying that I have received the Student Handbook and I understand the type of diploma for which I have applied, and neither ACI nor Rhode Island Baptist Seminary are responsible for my employment when finishing school.
