River College is an accredited three-year Bible College based at The River, a non-denominational, spirit-filled church in Lake Charles, LA
The Christian degree programs, the Associates in Theology and Bible Institute Certificate, offered at River College are designed to equip students for the call God has placed on their life. We have chosen to pursue independent accreditation in order to fulfill this assignment given by God to this ministry.
River College offers academic programs with the primary objective of establishing a firm foundation in understanding our identity and inheritance in Christ. River College is ministerial in nature and is not for persons intending to build secular careers.
River College is accredited through Accrediting Commission International, the world’s largest non-governmental school accrediting association. ACI is the accrediting authority for thousands of students in hundreds of schools in 9 countries on 5 continents, and operates in 35 states within the USA (including Washington, D.C.). Specializing in seminaries and Bible colleges, ACI is an independent accrediting agency that exists to help the religious world obtain accreditation that is not government affiliated. All ACI member schools accept credits from other member schools, if the credits apply to their programs. This form of ministerial accreditation is not recognized by the United States Department of Education, but is recognized by most churches and ministry organizations.
