FEBC is granted exempt status by the Ministry of Education (Singapore Government Gazette Volume VI, Number 87, dated Friday, September 25, 1964, Notification Number 2094). Singapore citizens admitted to the College are granted deferment from National Service until completion of their course of study.

FEBC is registered as a charity under the Charities Act (UEN: T04CC1760B).

FEBC is recognised by the immigration authorities of Singapore and has the right to enrol international students.

In 2005 FEBC was the first Bible College in Singapore to be awarded accreditation by CaseTrust for Education. CaseTrust-accredited institutions possess good student welfare practices and high quality standards with clear fee policies, well-defined student redress practices and systems, disclosure of commitment to quality, and well-trained academic and administrative personnel. With effect from January 25, 2006, FEBC is exempted from CaseTrust for Education. CaseTrust for Education is now the Council for Private Education.
