Crandall University holds a charter granted by the Legislature of the Province of New Brunswick permitting it to offer bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees.  Crandall also works hard to maintain strong collegial relationship with all its sibling universities within the Atlantic Provinces and an expanding and ever improving connection with other academic institutions and professional associations throughout Canada, the United States of America, and beyond.

In Canada there is no formal organization that accredits universities and colleges, but instead the concept of informal accreditation is practiced.  It is based on the acceptance of post-secondary studies by Canadian universities and Colleges, where the work completed meets criteria of faculty competence, standards of instruction, and standards of student achievement practiced by other universities in Canada.  Based on these standards, Crandall University graduates consistently achieve a high level.

Crandall University is a member of Christian Higher Education Canada, a membership association made up of 34 theological seminaries, Christian universities, and Bible Colleges. The association works together to resource member schools and their staff through training, advocacy, and mentoring.

Crandall University is an affiliate member of The Council of Christian Colleges and Universities, an association of approximately 175 Christ-centered colleges and universities of the liberal arts and sciences with member schools in 26 countries around the world.  The Council is committed to cultivating communities of educational excellence in which the lordship of Jesus Christ is central.  Member colleges are committed to maintaining the highest academic standards in an environment which fosters spiritual growth.  Over thirty denominations are represented in the Council, enriching the common fellowship with diversity. Working together, Council member colleges and universities accomplish things they could not do alone.  (See the “Programs of Study” section which outlines the academic opportunities available to students at Crandall through the CCCU.)

Crandall University has become known for its academic excellence and the integrity of its graduates.  With the increasing number of degree programs and the abilities of its faculty members, the reputation of the University continues to grow.
