  • Encourage and support growth of the metaphysical community across the globe
  • Ordain Ministerial Lightworkers
  • Raise the consciousness of the planet and beyond


The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality (US Department of Education). Traditional colleges and universities use accreditation as a measuring stick to compare their individual programs to a set of national standards provided by the professional organizations associated with the degrees being offered. Colleges choose to get accredited so that they can exchange credits with each other. 

In the world of metaphysics, our professional associations are not recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. As a result, metaphysical colleges and universities are not required to be accredited by the U.S. government. Students who complete courses in non-government approved programs are generally not permitted to transfer credits to U.S. accredited schools.
