About Cornerstone University of Florida

Cornerstone University of Florida was founded in 1999 and is a pioneer in distance education. Cornerstone University of Florida students span the globe. They are successful pastors, missionaries, Christian educators, counselors and business leaders. Education at CUF is based on the Judaeo-Christian traditional approach in contrast to the humanistic, shifting systems of secular education. We believe the Christian traditional approach provides the student with the best possible degree programs and methods of study.

CUF provides three flexible ways to study: on-campus, online and external studies programs. Studies at CUF are geared toward busy adult life that needs a student friendly, accelerated program to accommodate their busy lifestyle. On-campus courses are offered in once a week format. Off-campus courses can be taken through printed syllabi, quiz-exam, and the online format. Students are also offered a variety of on-campus workshops and regional workshops. Graduate students have the option of completing their degree through CUF 


The vision for Cornerstone University of Florida was given to the founder, Dr. Ted Ridoré in 1999, to not only illuminate the world with the word of God, and combines both scriptural and secular knowledge to equip & develop men and women with the values, knowledge, and skills essential to impact the world in all areas of academia.


CUF‘s mission is to provide men and women with academic excellence through a combined biblical and secular intellectually based curriculum that empowers them to become effective leaders towards a brighter future.
