Scott Christian University History
Christian University formally Scott Theological College, was
established in 1962 as the national theological College of the Africa
Inland Church, Kenya to provide training for church ministries at an
advanced academic level. The college was named in memory of Peter
Cameron Scott who led the African Inland Mission in Kenya in 1895 which
developed Africa Inland Church as one of its ministries.
grew and progressively upgraded its academic standards. In 1972, the
entry requirement was raised to a minimum of a Secondary School
Certificate, Level Three. A further upgrading of standards was done in
1982 with the introduction of a Bachelor of Theology (B.Th.) whereby the
programme entry requirement was raised to a university level. This
development was made possible through an arrangement with Ontrario Bible
College, an accredited degree granting college in Toronto, Canada. The
first B.Th. Students graduated from the college in1986.
December 1979, Scott received its accreditation from Accrediting
Council for Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA). It was the first
post-secondary theological institution in Africa to receive such
accreditation. In 1986, full accreditation of Scott’s Bachelor of
Theology degree programme was granted by ACTEA.

reworking on its academic programs and operations. Its Bachelor of
Theology degree was accredited by the Kenyan Higher Education Commission
as a university level degree at the same time. The institution was
granted the permission to change its name to Scott Christian University
by the Commission for Higher Education on March 23, 2012.
Christian University has subsequently expanded its academic offering to

the society. The University currently has three schools which include;
