Free Grace Bible College is legally recognized by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education as a degree-granting institution that is operated and supported by a church as described in Statute 136A.657. Our programs are primarily intended to provide students who desire to learn the basic doctrine and principles of the Christian faith with the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct their lives in consonance with the faith expressed at our church and/or to prepare students to become lay-ministers of the Christian faith within their social spheres. Because we meet these criteria, our programs are exempt from accreditation requirements in the state of Minnesota.
In order to maintain the freedom of selecting the most qualified instructors for our courses while keeping our tuition costs as low as possible, we are not pursuing accreditation at this time. Despite this status, we have always observed strict standards of excellence and integrity within our academics, policies and procedures. Ultimately, we believe that the spiritual results, personal growth, and character development in each of our students serve as adequate verification for the quality of our programs.
