Accreditation Notes: 
The Board of Commissioners has approved exceptions to residency requirements, thereby allowing the school to offer the following degrees completely online: MDiv and MACE (August 2013), MA in Biblical Counseling (June 2018), and ThM (June 2016). Beginning June 2015, the Board approved the school to offer coursework in all its PhD program specializations (except music) through synchronous online delivery; initially approved as a three-year experiment, the Board has since granted ongoing approval (June 2018).
