Great American University is a nonprofit, religious, educational institution owned by University Church.
Great American University is accredited by The American Positive Psychology Association, The American Board of Standards, and The American Graduate Studies Association. These accrediting bodies are recognized by the U. S. Department of Education. However, we do not participate in any federal student loan programs and therefore are not listed on the U. S. Department of Education website.
The U. S. Department of Education considers all accrediting bodies as equal and favors none!
We are opposed to federal student loan programs because they allow traditional colleges and universities to over-charge students. These students do not realize how difficult these loans will be to pay back upon graduation. Federal student loan programs are a kind of predatory lending by the U. S. government.
Great American University tuition is a fraction of the tuition charged by traditional colleges and universities so loans are generally not necessary to afford the tuition!
Great American University is exempt from government regulation pursuant to the First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and religion. There is a wall of separation between church and state. This constitutional principle was affirmed in a 2007 Texas Supreme Court decision that prohibited the State of Texas from regulating religious education.
