Accreditation is NOT required in the USA. Accreditation in the USA is purely voluntary. Religious schools such as Tripp Bible Institute need no secular accreditation because no secular (non-religious) studies are offered.
Tripp Bible Institute LLC is NOT accredited by any agency recognized by the U. S. Department of Education (DOE). We do not need or desire such accreditation because we are a single purpose school offering ONLY religious studies and do not offer any secular (non-religious) studies, degrees, or certificates.
Tripp Bible Institute does not seek, desire, or accept government endorsement (accreditation) at any level in order to maintain their strict separation of church and state policies. Too often government-made rules and regulations are contrary to the teaching of the Holy Bible.
Tripp Bible Institute does not accept endorsement (accreditation) from any organization affiliated with any denomination or religious group that teaches doctrines contrary to and in violation of God's Holy Word (the Holy Bible). "If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God" (1 Peter 4:11).
