Accreditation Notes: 
The Board of Commissioners has granted ongoing approval for a modified-residency PhD program (February 2010). As well, the Board has allowed online instruction to fulfill residency requirements for the DMin; initially approved as a three-year experiment (June 2016), the Board has since granted ongoing approval (June 2019). The Board has also approved the following exceptions to residency, thereby allowing the school to offer: the MDiv, each professional MA, and ThM completely online (June 2015), the MA in Spiritual Formation in hybrid format (June 2016; formerly the MA in Christian Spirituality and Formation), as well as the MA in Christian Discipleship, MA in Church Leadership, MA in Church Planting, and MA in Evangelism and Mission completely online (June 2020).
