Pillsbury College & Seminary represents a personal and practical
distance-learning alternative approach to Christian education. By its very
nature, Pillsbury is too innovative and experimental to fit into the
traditional mold established by most official accrediting agencies in the
United States. At its founding, however, the College & Seminary did adopt and
meet all of the structural, financial, and academic guidelines established by
an officially recognized accrediting agency.
Pillsbury, furthermore, does uphold the highest standards of academic
excellence, ethical conduct, and moral integrity to assure that all the
degrees awarded are absolutely legitimate and totally honorable. The College &
Seminary is owned, controlled, and operated by FreeWay Foundation . . .
formerly Christian Civic Foundation . . . a widely respected, legally
recognized Christian educational institution originally chartered by the State
of Missouri in 1890.

As a Christian school, Pillsbury College & Seminary was granted an "exemption"
by the Coordinating Board for Higher Education of the State of Missouri on
August 19, 1992.
In January, 2003, Pillsbury College & Seminary was granted "Accredited" status
by the Accrediting Commission International for Schools, Colleges, and
Theological Seminaries. ACI is an independent non-profit corporation chartered
as an accrediting agency for small Bible colleges and specialized Christian
schools, institutes, and seminaries.
ACI is dedicated to assisting those institutions of Christian higher education
to gain a quality, non-regional accreditation, characterized by academic
excellence and ethical practices. It has a current membership of over 300
schools in 39 states. Because of the convictions of its member schools in
support of religious freedom and the separation of church and state, ACI has
elected not to request official recognition as an accrediting agency from the
U.S. Department of Education.
Persons whose professional or career goals require certification by a state or
federal government agency should check in advance to determine whether a
degree from Pillsbury College & Seminary would be acceptable. Individuals
needing to earn a regionally accredited degree in one of the disciplines
offered by Pillsbury may wish to investigate comparable programs offered at
more traditional on-campus institutions currently accredited by a regional
association recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
