For immediate release
Alphacrucis College approved for Self-Accrediting Authority
Alphacrucis College (AC) is very pleased to announce that it has just been granted
Self-Accrediting Authority by the national higher education regulator, TEQSA. Receiving
Self-Accrediting Authority is a vital requirement for AC to move towards becoming a university.
Of the 128 Private Higher Education Providers in Australia, only 8 (including AC) are currently
self-accrediting. AC’s Chief Executive Officer, Assoc Prof Stephen Fogarty, is delighted about
this new development, “Obtaining Self-Accrediting Authority is an exciting next step for AC in
pursuing the goal to become a Christian university”.
This successful Self-Accrediting Authority application is a sign that TEQSA endorses the
quality and integrity of AC. TEQSA found AC to have a “history of successful operation as a
higher education provider including systematic, mature internal processes to assure and
maintain the quality of its courses, academic standards and academic integrity”, as well as a
“proven history of successful graduate outcomes”.
From certificates through to PhD level programs, in Business, Education and Theology, AC
already has a range of awards, and Self-Accrediting Authority gives AC the ability to expand
these offerings as required. With over 3000 students across VET and HE, AC has growing
campuses in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, and Auckland, as well as partner colleges throughout
Australia and in Finland.
This successful application for Self-Accrediting Authority is a key milestone for AC in
achieving its vision for university status.

The issue with personal EBSCO logins has now been resolved and you can again use your 'My EBSCOhost folder' login to access the databases rather than using the ACVET User ID and password, and then signing into your folder.
If you have not had access to EBSCO before, you can apply here: http://ac.edu.au/students/forms/ejournal_access_application/
If you have not created your 'My EBSCOhost folder' login, you can do so at the top right corner on EBSCO after you log in with the ACVET User ID/Password, click on 'Sign In' and then 'Create New Account' - we strongly recommend using your student number as your username.
If you have created your account but cannot remember your details, contact the library and we can have them reset.
Please let us know if you experience any problems with your EBSCO login, or if you need any assistance in using this facility.
