College Profile: Williamson Christian College
The mission of Williamson Christian College is to facilitate a bachelors degree-granting, non-traditional, higher education culture of excellence in which the Christian worldview permeates the process by which adults will grow intellectually and spiritually.
On December 31, 1996, the College was incorporated with the Secretary of State of the State of Tennessee. Application was made for college status with the Tennessee Higher Education Commission; approval was given in April 1997. The original approval for the College was for the baccalaureate degree to be granted in two majors. The degrees offered were modified by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) on January 28, 1999, to include the Bachelor’s Degree in Management and Ethics as well as Leadership and Ministry. In May 2003, THEC approved the granting of the Bachelor of Science degree in Management and Ethics, in Leadership and Ministry, and in Worship and Music.
The College enrolled its first student in credit and non-credit courses in the fall of 1998. On August 13, 2000, Williamson Christian College had its first Baccalaureate and Commencement ceremony. The College began with a strong orientation to provide both onsite and online access to its constituencies.

Accreditation by TRACS was effective March 20, 2002. In April 2003 THEC approved a new major in Music and Worship. In May 2003 THEC approved the granting of the Bachelor of Science degrees.
