The mission of FLET University is to provide academic theological and biblical education primarily for the Spanish-speaking world by means of distance learning. [Selected courses are now available in English.]

As of January 1, 2011, FLET is accredited by ABHE (Association for Biblical Higher Education). This includes both the Bachelors degree and the Masters degree programs.

The Association for Biblical Higher Education or ABHE (formerly The Accrediting Association of Bible Colleges or AABC) is a nationally recognized accrediting agency in the United States. It is recognized by the United States Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The ABHE is inter-denominational but requires annual affirmation of a common statement of beliefs.

Although faith-based national accreditors may have earned USDE and CHEA recognition, their accreditation is not automatically reciprocated by regional (or other) agencies or their accredited institutions. Contrary to the principles laid out in CHEA’s Transfer and the Public Interest: A Statement to the Community (1998), many institutions continue to base transfer credit decisions solely or primarily upon accreditation, regional accreditation in particular. Since all recognized accrediting agencies must meet USDE and CHEA recognition criteria, many of ABHE’s standards correspond to those of regional accreditors. In fact, a substantial percentage of ABHE-accredited US institutions are also accredited by the appropriate regional agency. ABHE typically engages in joint or coordinated peer review visits with regional accrediting agencies where both agencies accredit the same institution. ABHE accreditation, however, does not guarantee regional accreditation and vice versa. Each agency is responsible to conduct a bona fide peer review of institutions seeking accreditation and in some cases ABHE-accredited institutions have sought unsuccessfully to achieve regional accreditation.

They used to be accredited by DETC, it think???

Yes, Eric - but they resigned their DETC accreditation - as they're now part of ABHE-accredited Laurel U. Here's the thread:
