Institutional Accreditation

Why is accreditation important?

Accreditation is important for two reasons. First, it assures BSCTC students that they are receiving an education that meets the high standards of an independent organization.

Secondly, BSCTC is accredited to award associate degrees, a BSCTC degree is automatically recognized and accepted by all public or private four-year colleges and universities in Kentucky.
