Accreditation Notes: 
In June 2018, the Board of Commissioners approved a two-year educational experiment allowing the school to offer three semesters of its four semesters of coursework in a Contextual Theology specialization in its PhD (Religion) degree program at Chang Jung Christian University in Tainan, Taiwan. The experiment will begin in spring 2020 and conclude with a final report in spring 2022, at which time the school may request this experiment to be considered an ongoing exception to the Commission's doctoral residency requirements (Standard J, section J.3.1.1).
