GTEC, an amalgamation of the National Council for Tertiary Education and the National Accreditation Board has the mandate to regulate tertiary education in all its forms in Ghana.

The Commission is responsible for the accreditation of public and private tertiary education institutions; and programmes of public and private tertiary education institutions.

Without limiting subsection (l), the Commission shall determine (a) the requirements for the maintenance of standards of physical infrastructure, governance systems, human resources and financial sustainability in the tertiary education sector;

the programmes and requirements for the efficient and effective operation of a tertiary education institution and maintenance of acceptable levels of academic or professional standards in the institution; and

the levels of all qualifications awarded by recognised or accredited institutions including professional institutions in the country or elsewhere.

Prospective and Continuing students must be very much aware of the kind of tertiary institutions they attend to for their certificates so as to prevent going to institutions that are not given the necessary accreditation to run certain programmes.

In view of these functions, GTEC has given accreditation to Eight (8) Accredited Chattered Private Tertiary Institutions in Ghana for the 2022 Academic year.

    The Adventist Accrediting Association (AAA) has, since 1983, been evaluating and reviewing the accreditation status of the institution.  In 1995, the University was affiliated with Griggs University in Silver Springs, Maryland, USA.

Thus, Valley View University became the first private institution in Ghana to be granted national accreditation.

All Nations University was founded by Rev. Dr Samuel Donkor in Ghana. It began with 37 students in October 2002 and has now expanded to over 2000 students. It became an accredited university college in Ghana in October 2002.

All Nations University (ANU) was established by the All Nations Full Gospel Church (ANFGC), Toronto, Canada through the All Nations International Development Agency (ANIDA).

The Progenitor of the vision, Dr Samuel Donkor, challenged the African Diaspora in North America to support the development of Africa by investing in Human Resource Development through quality higher education.

The mission was to develop a new breed of leaders for the continent with a holistic education that emphasizes academic excellence, Christian values, discipline and ethical values in a Christ-centered environment.

The Government of Ghana readily embraced the idea in 1988, when Dr. Donkor sought permission for the All Nations University. However, it was not until 1996 that the master plan was presented to the National Accreditation Board (NAB).

Upon the approval by NAB, All Nations University was incorporated in 1996 and subsequently received its accreditation in May 1996.

After years of preparations, the University opened its doors to 37 pioneering students on November 4, 2002, for the Business and Computer Science undergraduate programmes. Today ANU has 13 accredited programmes and over 2000 students. You can read more about our programmes.
