Non – Discrimination
“Carolina Theological Seminary admits student of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available made to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid programs, and other school administered programs.”
Accreditation and Exemption
Carolina Theological Seminary is exempt as a Theological Institution in the State of South Carolina.
CITATION FOR EXEMPTION. The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education is the licensing authority for private postsecondary education under the provisions of the Nonpublic Postsecondary Institution License Act, Chapter 58 of Title 59, South Carolina Code of Laws, 1976, as amended. Section 59-58-30 of the law states that the definition of a “nonpublic educational institution” does not include “(4) Institutions whose sole purpose is religious or theological training.”
The US Department of Education (USDE) reviews and recognizes accrediting agencies. Accreditation by a USDE-recognized accrediting agency is one criterion for institutional eligibility for Federal funds. Another indicator of credibility for accrediting agencies is membership with the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). CHEA is a nongovernmental organization that evaluates and recognizes the work of its member accrediting agencies. Beware of institutions that publish accreditation by an agency that is not recognized by USDE or CHEA.
Carolina Theological Seminary is not an accredited institution and in no way should be perceived as granting accredited degrees or certificates for employment or any other purpose. We are strictly a theological training institution and hold to the freedom to preach and teach our beliefs without oversight of the government or any other board of oversight. Our accountability is to the local church, to God, and His inerrant Word.
