Organizations holding affiliate status with The Association of Theological Schools (ATS) are not members of the Association. They are organizations with a substantial interest in theological education but not involved in educational programs leading to a degree, or they are schools offering graduate theological degrees and related to identifiable communities of faith other than the Christian and Jewish faiths. Upon initial application and subsequent recommendation by the ATS Board of Directors, ATS affiliates are elected by a two-thirds vote of the members present and voting at a meeting of the Association. Affiliate status carries eligibility for appointment to committees and voice, but no vote in Association meetings. ATS affiliates pay annual dues as prescribed by the Association.

Affiliate status is not a membership category of ATS nor is it a pathway to membership. Schools wishing to become members of ATS can learn more about the membership process here.
