Frequently asked questions

Is your Instituted acredited by your state?

Affiliations YBN Institute, is under the leadership of Moreh Ely Hernandez. Our main campus and office is located in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, with international campuses in Argentina and Venezuela. Our Institute is regitered in the state of Rhode Island as Domestic Non-Profit Corporation. THE CORPORATION, IS ORGANIZED AND IS OPERATED EXCLUSIVELY FOR RELIGIOUS AND EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES WITHIN THE MEANING OF SECTION 501 (C) (3) OF THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE. All members of the YBN Institute Inc. staff and faculty, are either employees, volunteers of, or associated with YBN Institute. Compliance With State Requirements As a ministry of The Awakening Place, YBN Acadmy is an independent, religious-exempt institution, qualifying it to grant degrees in Theology and Biblical Studies. YBN Academy confers degrees and awards diplomas and certificates by exemption as a religious institution in the State of Rhode Island. Accreditation A school is accredited when it has been investigated and found worthy of approval by an accrediting agency. Accreditation alone (or the lack of it) does not determine whether or not a school is legitimate or credible, since not all accreditation is equal. Some accrediting agencies are recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, but others are not. Also, some schools are based outside of the U.S. and are accredited by standards which differ from those of the recognized agencies in the United States. Prospective students should be aware of these important distinctions. YBN Institute is not currently accredited for two main reasons. First, we wish to continue having local pastors teach Bible classes. Some of these pastors – although called by God, gifted, and experienced in teaching – do not have formal academic degrees, which accrediting agencies might require. Second, since accreditation can be quite expensive, we want to keep the cost of our education affordable so that more students have the opportunity to study and remain free from school debt. But though we have chosen to remain unaccredited, we seek to demonstrate the credibility of of our colleges through compliance with generally accepted accreditation standards, through articulation agreements with other accredited colleges, and especially through the spiritually fruitful lives of our students. Many opportunities are available for students who are called to pursue education beyond YBN Institute, even though academic degrees are not the main goal of our program.
