* Recognized Colleges and Universities
For purposes of admission and transfer into Vision International University Of Theology of Florida, a "recognized college or university" includes schools approved by a U.S. state, or accredited by an accrediting body that is approved either by CHEA, the U.S. Department of Education, or the equivalent foreign accreditation. Institutions outside the United States and Australia must meet comparable standards. Non-Accredited Religious Institutions with which Vision has an explicit articulation agreement may also be considered "recognized".
