Members & Affiliates

The Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) is a higher education association of 180 Christian institutions around the world. The 115 member campuses in North America are regionally accredited, comprehensive colleges and universities with curricula rooted in the arts and sciences and whose missions are Christ-centered and rooted in the historic Christian faith. In addition, 65 affiliate campuses from 20 countries are part of the CCCU. In addition to their baccalaureate programs, many of our members and affiliates offer master and doctoral degrees in a variety of disciplines. 

Membership Requirements 


1. INSTITUTIONAL TYPE AND ACCREDITATION All member campuses must offer comprehensive undergraduate curricula rooted in the arts and sciences, and be located in North America. All U.S. members must have non-probationary regional accreditation and Canadian institutions must have the equivalent accreditation in Canada.

2. CHRISTIAN MISSION Member campuses must have a public, board approved institutional mission or purpose statement that is Christ-centered and rooted in the historic Christian faith. They are committed to integrating Biblical faith with educational programs.

3. EMPLOYMENT POLICY Member campuses must have a continuing institutional policy and practice, effective throughout membership, to hire as full-time faculty members and administrators (non-hourly staff) only persons who profess faith in Jesus Christ.

4. COOPERATION AND PARTICIPATION Member campuses must be supportive of other Christian colleges and universities and have a commitment to advance the cause of Christian higher education through participation in the programs of the CCCU and payment of the annual dues. Member campuses are urged to demonstrate continuing support for the CCCU through annual registration for CCCU professional development and/or student programs.

5. INSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY Member campuses must demonstrate responsible financial operations, have institutional practices that reflect high ethical standards, and operate all financial and fund raising activities consistent with the standards of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, which can be reviewed at
Affiliates are North American institutions that have Christian missions but do not reflect all characteristics necessary for full membership.
Theological affiliates are accredited seminaries and Bible schools in North America that meet requirements 2-5.
International affiliates are institutions outside of North America that are focused on Christian undergraduate education in the liberal arts tradition.

Apply for Membership

On Sept. 23, 2016, the CCCU Board of Directors announced an update to its membership categories, which go into effect on July 1, 2017. The membership categories reflect CCCU institutions’ shared commitment to three core characteristics of Christian higher education: 1) integrating biblical truth into the academic enterprise; 2) the moral and spiritual formation of students; and 3) graduating students who make a difference for the common good as redemptive voices in the world. For more information, click here. Institutions interested in applying will be considered under this new structure and should contact for more information.
