The Goal

College Accreditation

Currently, the courses offered in the Kingdom Hope Community have no official accreditation. Our hope is that the Kingdom Hope Community will grow and one day offer these courses with accreditation as Kingdom Hope College. Of course, even with Kingdom Hope College launched, Kingdom Hope Community will run in parallel for those who do not need accreditation. Also, if you purchase a course now, and would like to get the accreditation when it is available, the money you have already paid will be taken into consideration

Until that point, please pray for us as we continue to develop more course content and work with accrediting associations to give more options to our students. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Kingdom Hope Community is the first stage of Kingdom Hope College. Kingdom Hope Community is where people can take courses for self-enrichment and Kingdom Hope College, when launched, will be the governing body that also enable students to take accredited courses.

The courses currently offered through the Kingdom Hope Community are for self-enrichment purposes. They do not come with accreditation, but will have corresponding courses available for accreditation with Kingdom Hope College when it launches.

We have not figured all the details regarding the transition from the Community to the College. One thing we know is that students will not have to pay twice for the same content. Additional charges will only apply if there are variations in the course such as added content, materials, assessments, etc.
