UNIVERSITY STATUS AND ACCREDITATION
John Melvin University is registered with the Secretary of State in Louisiana, USA. Louisiana R.S. 17:1808 requires all academic degree-granting institutions operating in the State of Louisiana to register with the Board of Regents (BoR). JMU has maintained Annual Registration with the Louisiana Board of Regents since 2021. John Melvin University is exempt from licensure because it is an institution offering religious degrees in the state of Louisiana.
JMU is accredited by the National Bible College Association. The NBCA provides non-governmental recognition and certification by providing accreditation to small, private, independent Christian institutions of higher learning. Their goals and purpose are to recognize, endorse and accredit institutions of higher learning that are dedicated to the principles of the Kingdom of God throughout the United States.
US DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION ACCREDITATION
John Melvin University is applying for Accreditation recognized by the U.S. Department of Education at this time but does not guarantee the acceptance of academic credit by other colleges and universities. An unaccredited institution is not necessarily substandard or fraudulent. There are indeed worthy and high quality institutions which have for one reason or another chosen not to seek accreditation. While JMU pursues accreditation recognized by the DOE, our commitment is to provide high quality instruction and academic settings to ensure our students grow academically and spirituatlly.
