Accreditation Notes: 
The Board of Commissioners has approved the following exceptions: to residency requirements for the PhD and EdD reduced-residency degree programs, thereby allowing the school to offer up to 50 percent of coursework through distance education (February 2016; expanded from one-third online, previously approved June 2014); to advanced standing limits and admission requirements for undergraduate seniors enrolled in Biola University's Biblical and Theological Studies program and pursuing Talbot School of Theology's MA in Christian Ministry and Leadership, thereby allowing the school 1) to admit such students beyond the standard 15 percent limit for admissions to graduate programs without a baccalaureate degree or its educational equivalent, and 2) to grant such students as many as 18 credits of advanced standing (June 2014); and to admission requirements for graduate certificate programs, thereby allowing the school to admit graduate certificate students beyond the standard 15 percent limit for admissions to graduate programs without a baccalaureate degree or its educational equivalent (February 2015).
