A note about accreditation for non-Alabama residents:

BTS maintains accreditation through the Association of Reformed Theological Seminaries (ARTS), which has not yet obtained recognition from the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). In response to the proliferation of “diploma mills,” some states have tightened their laws regarding which out-of-state institutions can offer classes and degrees to their residents. The tendency in those states is to exclude all institutions which do not have an accreditation recognized by CHEA or the U.S. Department of Education. While BTS believes that the classes and degree programs it offers are of a very high quality, prospective student should be aware of this issue. If you live in a state which has adopted restrictions on out-of-state institutions of higher education like the ones described above, BTS may not be able to offer you the distance education classes described on this website for academic credit.  We encourage you to check with your state’s higher education department before enrolling in courses at BTS.
