Bob Jones University announced a big achievement on Thursday.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission of Colleges (SACSCOC) granted the university regional accreditation.

The accreditation makes it easier to for students to transfer credits and gain acceptance into graduate schools. Some professions also require degrees from regionally-accredited universities.

“Being granted regional accreditation is one of the biggest milestones in Bob Jones University’s 90-year history,” says BJU President Steve Pettit. “We set out to obtain regional accreditation and strengthen our mission and, by God’s grace, we’ve accomplished both objectives.”

The regional accreditation is retroactive to January 2017.
