  Accreditation and Recognition                



Universidad FLET was officially given accreditation for our Bachelors and Masters programs in mid 2003 by DETC (Distance Education Training Council), located in Washington, D.C.

The Latin American Faculty for Theological Education, FLET, is registered with and licensed by the Commission of Independent Education of the Florida Department of Education under Section 246.084, as an organization offering a religious education program. As such, it has official authority to grant undergraduate and graduate academic degrees.  (For more information, please contact The Commission of Independent Education of the Florida Department of Education, 2586 Seagate Drive, Suite 200, Turner Building, Tallahasee, FL 32301, phone (850) 488-8695.)

 FLET University is affiliated with the Accrediting Association of Bible Colleges (AABC), 5575 S. Semoran Blvd., Suite 26, Orlando, FL 32822; phone (407) 207-0808.  This affiliation or applicant status is granted to those Christian colleges that meet the AABC eligibility requirements and that have qualities capable of providing a basis for obtaining membership.  FLET University has also applied for accreditation with the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC), located in Washington, D.C.

 Accreditation with DETC should facilitate the granting of credit by most institutions of higher education. However, FLET does not guarantee that any of the programs offered or credits granted by our institution will automatically be accepted by another educational institution.

Even before receiving accreditation, many recognized institutions such as: Trinity International University, Reformed Theological Seminary, Knox Theological Seminary, Fuller Theological Seminary, Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, and Gordon-Conwell Seminary, among others, accepted our credits in their curriculum. 

 FLET University strives to provide the best possible training to its students so that they might equip God’s people biblically, in order to present to the Lord Jesus Christ a church in which He rejoices (Rev. 19:7; Is. 62:5). We believe that this purpose is the most important objective for the leadership of Christ’s church. If God would be pleased to use FLET to accomplish this purpose in the Spanish-speaking world, it would be sufficient reward for our efforts in this educational ministry.

 IMPORTANT  NOTE

 The Latin American Faculty for Theological Education, FLET, does not identify itself with any other institution, neither in Latin America nor in any other part of the world, using names or acronyms similar to FLET.  Therefore, every student must make sure that the study materials, grades, degrees and/or any other documents, come from—and are properly identified by—the Latin American Faculty for Theological Studies, FLET, located in Miami, Florida, USA, in order to be recognized.

 

FLET is the educational branch of LOGOI, Inc. missionary organization established in 1968.
