The National Bible College Association (NBCA) provides reasonable and affordable accreditation for local Bible Colleges or Theological Seminaries. Seminaries are required to accept the credits, diplomas and degrees issued by all other member schools. The National Bible College Association seeks to provide non-governmental recognition and certification by way of providing accredited status to small, private, independent Christian institutions of higher learning.
