Accreditation Notes: 
Beginning February 2015, the Board of Commissioners approved the school to offer its MDiv according to a competency-based educational model; initially approved as a five-year experiment, the Board has since granted ongoing approval for the MDiv (June 2019), as well as the MA in Biblical Leadership (September 2019). In February 2015, the Board also approved an exception to admission requirements for the MDiv, thereby allowing the school to admit students without a baccalaureate degree (or its educational equivalent), based on i) the extensive nature of its competency-based MDiv, ii) a rigorous demonstration of student ability to do MDiv-level work, and iii) baccalaureate equivalency by means of 60 hours of undergraduate work plus a 30-credit Diploma in Christian Studies.
