NNU's Graduate School of Theology has the historic distinction of being the first institution with fully online programs ever to be granted full membership by the Association of Theological Schools, which accredits seminaries and graduate schools of theology in the United States and Canada. All of our graduate students begin their programs with a zero-credit online orientation to learning and research. While many of our students come from traditions outside the Church of the Nazarene, many Nazarene students will be encouraged to know that NNU's fully online M.Div. fulfills the academic requirements for ordination required by the denomination*.

*While NNU's MDiv programs have been validated by Nazarene Clergy Services as meeting the educational requirements for ordination in the Church of the Nazarene, denominational polity gives final authority on such matters to the district, not to general authorities.
