Degree-Granting Institution

On December 29, 2016, the SCA University of Theology and Spirituality received exemption approval. We are currently one of 51 school in the state of Washington who qualify for the exemption that are recognized by WSAC.

The Washington Student Achievement Council has reviewed the materials provided by UTS and determined that the degree programs listed meet the requirements of Chapter RCW 28B.85.040(2)(c) and WAC 250-61-060(7) of the Washington Degree-Granting Institutions Act and thus has granted UTS religious exemption.

UTS will be applying for accreditation with the Association of Theological Schools as soon as it is eligible to do so. We will hope to complete this accreditation as quickly as possible. 

The Spiritual Care Association University of Theology and Spirituality is a fully-Accredited Member of the International Association for Distance Learning.
