Started in 1974, Christian Service University College (CSUC) is one of the leading universities found in Ghana’s second largest city, Kumasi. It is accredited by two leading accreditation bodies; the National Accreditation Board of Ghana and the Accrediting Council for Theological Education in Africa. With the focus to be a first-class evangelical Christian university, CSUC is affiliated to the Council for Christian Universities and Colleges and the University of Ghana.
Below are the Christian Service University College fees according to the programs offered and the entry requirements for each of them. Before that, here is a brief history of how the University started.
CSUC brief history
There are two visions that led to the development of Christian Service University College. First, there was a team of Ghanaian Christians who had the vision to start an interdenominational, high academic standard evangelical institution. The major aim for this vision was to train all-round men and women under the Christian ministry. The other side of the merger was made up of emigrant missionaries who also had a desire to produce workers from the already thriving church in southern Ghana covering northern Ghana and the nearby countries that did not have well-established churches.
During the 1960s and 70s, the evangelical Christianity in Ghana was characterized by collaboration and intimate interaction that sought to exterminate denominational, group and mission distinctions. On the other hand, the Worldwide Evangelization for Christ under the second group had a property with four residential houses and a radio station. They were also planning to put up a large building for the new college. When the two groups met, they agreed to merge their visions, and groundbreaking residential classes started in 1974 where the college continued to grow until it is now a large Evangelical Christian College.
