Christian Accreditation Council and Standards Commission (CACSCOM) is one of the international higher education accrediting bodies in Africa and Indian. CACSCOM is a voluntary, non-profit, self-governing organization having as its primary purpose the accreditation of Christian educational institutions and Christian NGOs. Through its evaluation activities the Commission provides public assurance about the educational quality of degree-granting institutions that seek or wish to maintain accreditation.


Christian Institutions of higher learning achieve accreditation from CACSCOM by demonstrating they meet the Commission’s Standards for Accreditation and comply with its policies. The Standards for Accreditation establish criteria for institutional quality; in addition, the Commission adopts policies that elucidate the Standards, relate to their application, and otherwise ensure that the Commission is current with respect to international requirements and changing circumstances in Christian higher education and public expectation. Moreover, the Commission expects affiliated institutions to work toward improving their quality, increasing their effectiveness, and continually striving toward excellence. Its evaluative processes are designed to encourage such improvement.


Each of the Standards articulates a dimension of institutional quality. In applying the Standards, the Commission assesses and makes a determination about the effectiveness of the institution as a whole. The institution that meets the Standards:


1. has clearly defined purposes appropriate to an institution of higher learning;


2. has assembled and organized those resources necessary to achieve its purposes,


3. is achieving its purposes;

has the ability to continue to achieve its purposes.


4. The Commission recognizes that some aspects of an institution are always stronger than others.
