Bishop Eddie Long Hands Out Bogus Degrees

Leave a Comment
Students at Atlanta megachurch Bishop Eddie Long’s satellite university campus have been informed that their bachelor’s degrees are useless after officials discovered the school was unaccredited. The New Birth Missionary Baptist Church campus, which offered a satellite program of North Carolina Central University (NCCU) in Durham, N.C., closed down in June when the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) reviewed the school and would not approve it. The move affected 39 students currently enrolled and at least 25 who had already received degrees. It was announced this week that NCCU will have to repay students any federal loan money issued since the New Birth campus began in 2004. Long is working with University of North Carolina system President Erskine Bowles, who blames NCCU’s prior leadership—which established the program—for failing to seeking SACS accreditation until earlier this summer.


The translation is that the 4 years some of the people went to the school was useless. It is one thing if the Church had said they were not seeking accredidation, but they told the students they had it, and students took out loans to pay for it. This was not just a drop of a ball, but something that these people now have to go back to school to accomplish.

Whatever happened to integrity in Churches? Too many are failing miserably.
