Grace Bible Reformed University Receives Accreditation from QAHE Apr 09, 2024

Grace Bible Reformed University (GBRU) is proud to announce its accreditation by the International Association for Quality Assurance in Pre-Tertiary & Higher Education (QAHE). This esteemed accreditation recognizes GBRU's commitment to providing high-quality education in the realm of biblical and theological studies.

Located in the city of Florence, Arizona, Grace Bible Reformed University has been serving students since its establishment in 2015. Recently, the university has found a new home at 225 E Butte Ave in downtown Florence. GBRU offers a unique blend of on-campus and online classes, catering to a diverse range of students.

The core mission of Grace Bible Reformed University is to offer bible and theology courses to prisoners, religious volunteers who preach and teach in prisons, as well as individuals aspiring to become ministers and educators of the word of God. GBRU believes in nurturing students' spiritual growth while equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary to make a positive impact in their communities.

GBRU provides various academic programs to suit the needs of students:

Certificate Program: Students, both enrolled and non-enrolled, have the opportunity to study for a certificate program one class at a time. The program allows flexibility and the option to transfer credits towards a degree program.

Bachelor's Degree Program: GBRU's Bachelor's Degree program offers a comprehensive curriculum that can be completed in two or more years, depending on individual time and financial availability. Transfer students with prior coursework may be able to expedite their degree completion.

Master's Degree Program: GBRU's Master's Degree Program welcomes students who possess a bachelor's degree or have substantial experience in an undergraduate program. Students in this program have the option to combine it with a bachelor's or doctorate program.

Doctorate Degree Program: GBRU's Doctorate Degree Program is the pinnacle of academic achievement offered by the university. Students in this program are encouraged to work as teachers within GBRU. Applicants must hold a master's degree or have significant experience in their graduate program.

Grace Bible Reformed University adopts a racially non-discriminatory policy, admitting students of all races, colors, national origins, and ethnicities. The university affords all students the rights, privileges, programs, and activities available to its student body.

While GBRU is registered with the Arizona Corporation Commission, it is important to note that religious institutions in Arizona are not accredited by the state. GBRU's registration confirms its qualifications to grant religious certificates, diplomas, and degrees in Arizona, meeting the state's regulations.

As a religious institution, GBRU is exempt from the higher education licensing process outlined in ARS § 32-3022, as long as its degrees are used strictly for religious purposes within a tax-exempt religious organization. GBRU holds tax-exempt status and operates under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Accreditation from QAHE further validates Grace Bible Reformed University's dedication to academic excellence and the pursuit of knowledge in biblical and theological studies. This recognition opens doors to expanded opportunities for GBRU students and faculty, fostering a vibrant academic community.
