Higher Learning Commission Reaffirms Maranatha Baptist University Accreditation for next 10 Years

Watertown, WI (March 4, 2024) – Maranatha Baptist University announces that the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) has reaffirmed its accreditation for the next 10 years. This decision follows a comprehensive review process conducted by an HLC review team culminating in a vote last week by the HLC Institutional Actions Council (IAC).

The IAC also recognized MBU’s eligibility for the HLC’s Open Pathway, a designation reserved for institutions with a well-established record of strong operational practices and a commitment to continuous improvement.

“We are grateful to the Lord for guiding us through this successful accreditation process,” said Dr. Matthew Davis, CEO of Maranatha Baptist University. “The dedication of our faculty and staff to providing a high-quality education for our students was instrumental in achieving this important milestone. Accreditation is not the ultimate mark of approval for a Christian college as we seek to please the Lord first and foremost in every facet of the ministry. But this reaffirmation does provide an objective measure of the high value of a Maranatha degree for its students and graduates who can rely upon the consistent quality and proven expertise of the institution and its faculty.”

This reaffirmation of accreditation ensures that MBU’s degrees are recognized by institutions nationwide and that students receive a quality education that prepares them for success in their chosen fields.
