After 20 Years, Morris Brown College Is Set To Get Its Accreditation Back

Big news for the HBCU community! Morris Brown College is finishing up the final steps to get its accreditation back!

According to Morris Brown’s administration, the college’s accreditation application with the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) has been approved. 

TRACS is the accreditation body which Bennett College, Paine College, Paul Quinn College, and Virginia University of Lynchburg have their accreditation under. TRACS is set to visit Morris Brown’s campus in January 2021 to do a final evaluation before candidacy consideration in April 2021. If all goes well with the review, Morris Brown would receive full accreditation.

“This is history in the making,” Dr. Kevin James, president of Morris Brown, said according to The Atlanta Voice. “Morris Brown intends to become the first HBCU to earn its accreditation back twenty years after losing it. When Morris Brown achieves candidacy status, hopefully by April 2021, it will give the college all the rights of a fully accredited college, which allows students to receive federal financial aid. Additionally, student degrees will be recognized by other schools and/or employers.”

We at Watch The Yard are extremely excited about this news and look forward to Morris Brown College receiving full accreditation. The more HBCUs, the better!
