Many Christian colleges are affiliated with or are run by a Christian denomination, while others are non-denominational. Christian colleges include a range of schools from regionally or nationally accredited universities offering liberal arts and professional programs to non-accredited bible colleges that prepare students mainly or exclusively for vocational ministry.
Being a non-accredited bible college puts significant limits on a school's growth, because accreditation is necessary for an institution to be eligible for federal financial aid programs. Sometimes an administrator will seek accreditation with an accrediting agency that is not recognized by the US Department of Education. Such "accreditation mills" are appealing to those who run "degree mills."
