AETH’s Certification of Bible Institutes consists of a series of institutional and educational standards which establish a minimum of institutional operation and academic quality that are compatible with baccalaureate level education. These standards have been approved by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) as satisfying the criteria for admission in seminary members of the ATS. The fundamental objectives of the Certification are:
- To promote and improve the theological education of eligible Bible Institutes so that their graduates function at a baccalaureate level.
- To provide graduates of Bible Institutes certified by AETH a direct pathway to enrollment in ATS theological schools willing to accept AETH’s certification as sufficient for admission to their master level programs.
