Accreditation

Students who have earned their advanced degree from New Geneva are successfully serving as pastors, youth leaders, and missionaries in several denominations and as chaplains in the U.S. military. Many have gone on to attain additional degrees.

When choosing a graduate school for biblical and theological studies, students are naturally concerned that the institution they attend is held to the highest standards of academic excellence. Unaccredited schools may have inadequate standards and procedures for evaluating the quality of the education they offer. Credits earned at unaccredited schools may not be transferable to other institutions, and degrees earned may not provide an adequate foundation for further studies.

New Geneva Theological Seminary is accredited by the Association of Reformed Theological Seminaries (ARTS), a coalition of several Reformed seminaries that has formed standards for holding member schools accountable to maintain the highest academic standards. The standards set by ARTS rival those of other accrediting agencies recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

ARTS is currently seeking recognition from the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA, www.chea.org) a non-profit, non-government, traditional, peer-review accrediting organization advocate.
