Cincinnati Christian University Closes Mid-Year

The University posted on their website on Monday that doors will close at the end of this semester.

(Cincinnati, Oh.) - Current students, professors, and administration at Cincinnati Christian University must find other arrangements for the upcoming 2020 semester. 

CCU announced yesterday, October 28, that the university has decided to withdraw from Higher Learning Commission accreditation after the Fall 2019 semester. 

This has led to panic with the student body and faculty. With less than 2 months before the end of the semester, they will have to find other arrangements to continue their education.

In a 'letter to the students' found on the CCU website, University trustees explain that the university will try to help students continue their studies elsewhere. It reads, "In preparing for this closure, we have reached out to over a dozen accredited institutions that would like to invite you to complete your education with them. All of these schools are accredited, most by the Higher Learning Commission (CCU’s accrediting body) or other regional accreditors. CCU has already been working with these schools on preliminary “teach-out” or transfer arrangements that will help you complete your education as easily as possible."

Although the doors will be closing as Cincinnati Christian University, they will be opening up as an extension site for an already established Central Christian College of the Bible in Missouri. 

"Cincinnati Christian University (CCU) announces a new partnership with Central Christian College of the Bible (CCCB). This follows the decision by CCU’s Trustees to withdraw from Higher Learning Commission accreditation following the Fall 2019 semester.  In Spring 2020, CCCB will open an extension site in Cincinnati to provide accredited ministerial degrees in the region. At the same time, CCU will work together with CCCB to serve more congregations and ministry leaders through the Center for Church Leadership (CCL)."
