Kingswood University is operated under a Charter granted by the Legislature of the Province of New Brunswick and is authorized to confer degrees in church-related education.
Kingswood University is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the Association for Biblical Higher Education (www.abhe.org) to grant certificates and degrees at the Associate, Baccalaureate, and Master’s levels. Based in Orlando, Florida, ABHE is recognized as a “faith-based” accrediting agency by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and an officially recognized “national accrediting association” by the U.S. Department of Education. The Association’s member colleges and universities are also recognized by the Department of Justice, the Veterans Administration, and other relevant federal agencies in the United States.
Kingswood is also registered with Christian Higher Education Canada (www.checanada.ca); the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (www.evangelicalfellowship.ca); and the Association of Christian Schools International (www.acsi.org).
Students may transfer credits to and from our sister institutions (Houghton College, Indiana Wesleyan University, Wesley Seminary, Oklahoma Wesleyan University) owned and operated by The Wesleyan Church.
