Students may be active in up to nine credits (three courses) of course work at one time. If a student completes the course early, upon completion, students will no longer have access to that online course.

HERITAGE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
HERITAGE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
About: Heritage Christian College (HCC) is a higher educational institution sponsored by the Churches of Christ. It has its roots in the establishment of the National Bible Institute (NBI), a two-year preacher training school established in January 1982 by the Nsawam Road Church of Christ, Ghana, to train gospel ministers. Daniel Ampadu-Asiamah served as the pioneer Director of NBI until December 1984 when he moved to Togo as a missionary. Following that, Dan L. McVey, then resident American missionary served as NBI Director until June 1999 when Samuel Twumasi-Ankrah was appointed as Principal of NBI. In 2001, Twumasi- Ankrah’s proposal to transform NBI into an accredited liberal arts college received an enthusiastic support by the oversight elders of the Nsawam Road Church, and based on their wise counsel, the then National Bible Institute was integrated into the Heritage Christian College system in December 2001. Thus began the long process of developing HCC to become an accredited Christian university college affiliated with the Churches of Christ. Through the generosity of several individuals and congregations in Ghana and the United States, HCC was able to purchase a piece of land at Afiaman, Accra, and develop key infrastructure as well as distinctive academic programmes which were required for the grant of accreditation by the government of Ghana. In February 2012, HCC received affiliation status from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST), Kumasi; a mentorship status which by law is required in order that KNUST shall award certification to HCC graduates till HCC eventually becomes an academic institution chartered by the President of Ghana. Finally, in March 2015, the National Accreditation Board of Ghana granted HCC both institutional and programme accreditation certificates. A particular mention ought to be made of the inestimable contributions made by certain groups of people as a result of which HCC has obtained its reputable accreditation status: Douglas & Margaret Boateng who paid for the cost of the land that serves as HCC campus; George Chisholm and the Traverse City Church of Christ, Michigan, whose initiative and sacrifices made it possible to raise the funds needed for the construction of the initial HCC buildings; Deon & Susan Fair who along with others set up the HCC Foundation and continue to provide financial, technical and academic support; Shane & Melissa McClung whose continued support remains pivotal ; and the Nsawam Road Church of Christ, Accra, Ghana whose support and oversight role is the bedrock of HCC

GHANA ARMED FORCES COMMAND & STAFF COLLEGE
GHANA ARMED FORCES COMMAND & STAFF COLLEGE
About: VISION To project GAFCSC as a Center of Excellence and as one of the leading Staff Colleges in Africa and the rest of the World .MISSION To train selected middle level officers of the Ghana Armed Forces, other security services, and qualified civilians as well as officers of friendly Armed Forces, for middle level policy, command, staff and leadership functions in joint, combined and multi-agency operations. To provide higher engagements, within the national and international environment .The Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College (GAFCSC) was established in 1963 with the mandate to train officers of the Ghana Armed Forces and allied officers of Africa in command and staff responsibilities. Over the years, it has received and trained personnel from sister African nations and has concentrated on core military/defence programmes, leading to the award of Pass Staff College (PSC) certificate. The need for venturing into other programmes that would arm graduates of GAFCSC with the requisite knowledge was necessitated by imperatives of the global system. The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has participated in peace support operations since 1960. It is this imperative that informed the decision to widen the scope of courses run by the GAFCSC. The College therefore sought collaboration with the University of Ghana and GIMPA to run various courses to satisfy the felt need already mentioned above. Having obtained Institutional Accreditation, the College is now poised to run its own courses, while not truncating the collaborative link with the aforementioned institutions. Towards the realization of its new focus and aims, the College embarked upon massive infrastructural expansion. A new complex to house the College has been completed. It has all the facilities needed for running the programmes envisaged including classrooms, administrative offices, an auditorium, audio-visual aid systems, a library (including a laboratory) etc. GAFCSC is noted, as a world class College and a regional training centre, not only in Defence and Military Studies, but also in Governance and Leadership, International Politics, Administration and Management, as well as Crisis and Conflict Management. In this, the College has collaborated with both local and international institutions of higher learning – University of Ghana, Legon, Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Cranfield University (UK), and Bradford University (UK).

PRESBYTERIAN UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
PRESBYTERIAN UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
About: According to the church history, in 1843, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana established the first primary school in the country. This sparked off a series of bold, visionary and pioneering initiatives in the development of education in the country. Five years later, it established the Presbyterian Training College (PTC) at Akropong, the second higher educational institution in West Africa after Fourah Bay College in Sierra Leone. Since those early beginnings, the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has established and managed, in partnership with the Government of Ghana , hundreds of primary schools, many high schools and colleges of education. These schools and colleges, guided by the proverbial Presbyterian discipline, set very high moral as well as educational standards, which have characterized the Presbyterian Education tradition. Also in partnership with government, the church has provided and managed Professional, Technical and Vocational Institutions in a wide range of fields including Agriculture and Health. Specifically, the church has established 1,886 schools comprising 490 Nurseries, 973 Primary Schools, 388 Junior High Schools, five (5) Vocational Institutes, five (5) Colleges of Education and 25 Senior High Schools. With the establishment of the Presbyterian Training College (PTC), it was hoped that, like the Fourah Bay College in Sierra Leone, it might one day be upgraded to a university. However, after several years, it was not until 1996 that the Synod of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at that time took the bold decision to initiate steps into establishing a university. The body charged with pushing forward this initiative, the Presbyterian University Implementation Committee, was formally established in 1998. It is through these efforts and the determination of the Church that the Presbyterian University College, Ghana has come into being.
