Licensure Exemption and Accreditation Information
Community Education & Training Institute (FFCI) offers non-academic, faith- based professional development courses to support individual growth in ministry and service to the community. Therefore, FFCI is not an accredited institution and is exempt from oversight by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education, as outlined below.
“The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education is the licensing authority for private postsecondary education under the provisions of the Nonpublic Postsecondary Institution License Act, Chapter 58 of Title 59, South Carolina Code of Laws, 1976, as amended. Section 59- 58-30 of the law states that the definition of a “nonpublic educational institution” does not include “(4) Institutions whose sole purpose is religious or theological training.” (Reference SCCHE -Updated 02/26/2016)
NOTE: In the future, as FFCI grows and expands to offer full non-academic degrees and diplomas, FFCI administrators may decide to pursue accreditation from a recognized accrediting agency that accredit theological institutions.
