They stated, “Our rankings aim to identify institutions that are acting on behalf of the true public interest.” In 2015, MACU was also recognized among the top 100 colleges in the Southeast as “The Best Bang for the Buck” by Washington Monthly.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) has reaffirmed the accreditation of Mid-Atlantic Christian University for the next 10-year period. This announcement came in a letter from Dr. Belle S. Wheelan, President of SACSCOC dated July 1, 2015. The accreditation is reaffirmed without any required conditions or follow-up actions. The mission of SACSCOC is to assure the educational quality and improve the effectiveness of its member institutions. The six core values of SACSCOC, on which accreditation is based, are: integrity, peer review/self-regulation, student learning, continuous quality improvement, accountability, and transparency. Each candidate institution must submit documentation that the detailed specifications of each value have been met during the last 10 years. The intense reaffirmation process took two and a half years of writing various reports that were reviewed by three different committees of peers from member institutions of SACSCOC.  Mid-Atlantic Christian University’s reaffirmation means that the university remains regionally accredited through 2025. A major component of the reaffirmation process is the development of a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).  MACU’s QEP is “Connecting Cultures.” The university will seek to increase students’ global awareness by increasing their cultural knowledge and cultural engagement.
