2017 Self-Study Documents


Lancaster Bible College | Capital Seminary & Graduate School (LBC|Capital) is accredited by both the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) and the Association for Biblical Higher Education’s Commission on Accreditation (ABHE-COA). The reaffirmation of our accreditation depends on a process of self-study which culminates in a site visit by an evaluation team. This self-study process allows LBC|Capital the opportunity to show our accrediting bodies that we are indeed fulfilling our mission statement, accomplishing our institutional goals, and meeting both MSCHE and ABHE-COA accreditation standards. The self-study process is also a time for LBC|Capital to identify areas in which we can excel even more as an institution as we seek to glorify God and to build His kingdom.  

On this page you will find links to the final versions of our two self-study documents. Hard copies of the two documents are also available for review in the President’s Office. [Due to the propriety nature of many of the appendices and supporting documents mentioned in the chapters, all links have been deactivated on these public versions. Faculty and staff can view the chapters complete with links to appendices and supporting documents via the Institutional Effectiveness public folder.]

Comments or questions regarding these documents can be directed to or by calling 717.560.8237.
