Accreditation Notes: 
The Board of Commissioners has approved exceptions to residency requirements, thereby allowing the school 1) to count immersion courses towards residency for the MA in Ministry and MA in Leadership Development degree programs (June 2015) and 2) to offer the MDiv and MA in Ministry degree programs completely online (June 2018). In February 2018, the Board approved a four-year experiment, thereby allowing the school to offer its ThD degree through a combination of intensive courses on campus and faculty-directed individual instruction.
