Hyles-Anderson College has operated free of academic governmental oversight or regulation since its founding in 1972. The Board of Trustees has chosen not to seek regional or national accreditation. The primary reason for this is to avoid the potential of outside influences or pressures to change our theological, doctrinal, and moral positions.

The Board has considered that according to the United States Department of Education, accreditation is a voluntary process, Hyles-Anderson College has elected to exercise this privilege by remaining autonomous.

It is the belief of Hyles-Anderson College and other similar Bible colleges and schools that the best measurement of the effectiveness of the institution is the ministerial success of its graduates. Hyles-Anderson College has provided excellence in education and ministry training since 1972. There are thousands of our graduates faithfully serving the Lord in ministry positions all around the world in large part because of their training at Hyles-Anderson College.
