Accreditation Notes: 
The Board of Commissioners has approved the following exceptions to residency, thereby allowing the school to offer the MA in Church Ministries, MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, MA in Counseling, and MA in Discipleship and Christian Formation [discontinued] (August 2013), as well as the MDiv and DMin (February 2018) completely online. In February 2019, the Board also approved an exception to DMin admissions requirements, thereby allowing the school to define MDiv equivalency as i) an accredited theological master's degree, ii) a portfolio comparable to what is otherwise required for MDiv completion, iii) at least three years of ministry, and iv) a personal interview comparable to what would otherwise be an MDiv capstone review.
