Accreditation Notes: 
The Board of Commissioners has approved exceptions to residency requirements, thereby allowing the school to offer the following degrees completely online: MDiv, MA in Christian Education, and MA in Missiology (February 2014), as well as the MA in Discipleship and MA in Pastoral Ministry (February 2016). Beginning June 2016, the Board approved the school to offer roughly two-thirds of required coursework for its PhD program through synchronous video; initially approved as a three-year experiment, the Board has since granted ongoing approval for coursework in all PhD program specializations to be offered through synchronous online delivery (June 2019).
